If you can take a little smaller screen you might think about getting
a IBM X301. I love mine to bits. It is a really good piece of kit. A
little pricey but you pay for quality. I really USE my laptops and
never had a problem with a Think Pad (X series)

Works pretty much out of the box with CentOS 5. rpmforge has the rest.
Full install took me less then 2 hours.
