Laptops For Linux?

Hello, Folks.

My Wonderful little IBM Thinkpad 600 has finally bitten more dust than 
not, and with a degrading hard drive, a dead motherboard battery, and a 
possibly bad parallel port, I think I must sadly move on to something new.

I really liked the physical design of the TP 600 (the best laptop design I 
have run into recently).

I need to get a new unit, upon which I can install Linux rather painlesly.

I'll need something with one PCMCIA slot and an ethernet port, or two 
PCMCIA slots, an RS232 serial port, and a parallel port, for all that 
legasy gear I still must use.

I am over on right now, but I wanted to get opinions from 
those here.

I'm going to buy new for once in my life, so don't tell me about anything 
more than a year or so old.

Any recomendations?
