Laptop suggestions

I am looking to get a new laptop soon and a new wirless card, I would be running fedora or Freebsd and I was wondering in anyone had any suggestions as to what is a good supported laptop and card to get, since I currently own a sony with a docking station nightmare! and an onronco gold card

I need a nice thin light little notbook that everything will install easily on for use in penetration testing of wireless devices and network penn testing. Preferably a mobile processor that runs cool which rules out p4's i hate p4!!
With BSD I know I can get everythign running farely smooth but I know fedora is always a pain in the butt!!!

Any hardware suggestions for thin fast notebooks!!!

I suggest you check and see if the laptop that you want to get is listed on the site.
