Many of you have responded off list with advice on how to fix my existing machine.  While I don't plan on throwing it out or giving up on it, I do really think it is time for a new laptop.  I have only 3 requirements - that it run freebsd, its light in weight but durable (I carry it everywhere), and it has incredibly long battery life. 

I don't use my laptop for anything that isn't business related. Most of the time I open up a few ssh sessions and a web browser and that's it.... So high power and high video card output, etc isn't so important. 

Any suggestions?  Is IBM still the way to go? 

Thanks all!
