In my experience with an R61, Thinkpads come pretty close (with the
Intel wireless card and firmware from non-free).  Stay away from the
memory card reader option for "perfect" (the memory stick support won't
work, although SD should).  I don't know on the modem; I never have a
need to use it.  Some of the keys are a little odd/non-working (volume
buttons particularly).
