I have an HP/compaq nc4000 (now a year old, was about 600 from Morgan
when I bought it) which I'm pretty happy with.  Never got the
suspend-to-ram working in Linux (which would be nice), but it
happily[*] suspends to disk using the in-kernel swsusp support (note
that this is not the same as "suspend2")


[*] "happily" after I hacked up the driver for the 3com pcmcia
wireless card a bit so that it didn't need to load card firmware from
the filesystem on a resume.  swsusp doesn't like that much
