I have 2 Dell laptops - a Latitude X200 which is very light has worked 
flawlessly since I got it about 4 years ago, and a D600 (owned by work) 
which is bulkier but again has worked for years and runs an average of 
10 hours a day. Both run windows, but I've seen Linux working on the 
X200 that a friend has.

I'm after an upgrade too, and would be happy to go for Dell again 
probably, though I think you do have to spend more to get the good 
machines (Inspirons not as good as Latitudes)

I hear the T-mobile dongle things work well.
