If the cost of a Thinkpad isn't prohibitive, and XP isn't a
requirement, another option is to get an Apple laptop. You get a
friendly interface, a reasonable selection of third-party software,
and considerably less vulnerability to malware. I know a number of
people who are very happy with their Powerbooks, and some of them are
fairly hard-core Unix guys.
