I'm happy with my i5 ThinkPad T410 with Intel HD Graphics.

I have problems with the Realtek 8191SE wireless network
device. The Realtek driver built but didn't appear to
support scanning for wireless networks. 
(I didn't manage to get ndiswrapper working.)

To get better video performance, I ended up compiling
Intel's Xorg video driver (xf86-video-intel).

Shrinking the Windows 7 partition was awkward, although
it looks like Partition Wizard (based on Linux =) will handle 
this task easily.
