I'm using about an 18 month old IBM X31.  It's a 1.4GHz Pentium M.
I'm quite happy with it.  It's very small and light.

Matt's using a newer IBM X40-something.  It's got a larger and higher
res display.  It does 1400 x something.  His is a bit faster than
mine, but is also bigger and heavier.

They've both got fine keyboards and run Linux out of the box.
I'm using Mandrake 10.1 Official.  Matt's running Fedora Core 2.
I've got a Cisco/AIRONET MPI-450 mini-pci 802.11b card.  I think
Matt's got the atheros card, but I'm not sure.  I also opted for
gig-Ethernet.   Makes file transfers on my home network fly!

We both ordered directly from IBM's web site.
