The Compal 2020 OEM system has been serving me fine since January.  

This was previously sold as the TuxTops Amethyst 20U (who I bought it
from), now marketed as QLITech (who picked up the TuxTops line:
http://www.qlitech.net/) and a few other resellers, including ChemBook
and a major US computer manufacterer whose employment tactics lately
have been pissing me off (and hurting friends).

This is a lightweight (w/ docking base removed, 2.4 lb) system but with
a comfortable keyboard and 1024x768 screen (13.3").  I got the PIII
600/500 with 128 MB and a 20GB drive (more storage than my other two
boxes combined ;-).  CPUs to 850 MHz, memory to 320 MB.
