For what it is worth, my IBM r32 seems to be well supported.  I got this 
refurb'd with a 3 Year IBM warranty for $800 from off-leasecomputers.com.  
I have wireless, Xfree86, and sound working,  I have not had time to play 
with sleep/suspend, firewire, etc. but it all seems to be seen.  Battery 
life is about 2 hours.  

In general, I think the IBM laptops are well supported (and well 
supported in Linux).  TechBargains had a good deal on a t42 a couple of 
days ago.
"IBM Thinkpad t42 Centrino $1199 - January 5, 2005

shipped free, save $300. $29.99 upgrade to Office 2003 Basic.  "

Here is the dmesg from my r32:
