I've been pretty happy with my compaq nc4000 for the past year or so.
It's probably not made any more (and doesn't have as much ram as you
want), but +1 for the hp/compaq range in general.  Lots of
easily-googleable linux resources on the net for them too

Never managed to get ACPI suspend-to-ram working (but swsusp
hibernate-to-disk is fine) and haven't even tried to use the builtin
modem, but I think everything else is supported.
