I will second the Thinkpad suggestion ;-)

I have an A31, the onboard intel8x0 chip works ok, stero line in, mono
mic. Built in WLAN supported in Linux. It also has the Ultrabay2000
slot. I currently use it for a second hd, but you can get hot swappable
batteries for it. Screen is great. Works with Ardour and Jack very well.
And when the cardbus firmware issue, on the RME hdsp card, get fixed I
will be able to do 24chs in and out.
