IBM R or Z for FC5 plus question on their video cards and other hardware

I'm looking at either a Thinkpad Z or R series notebook to run FC5. Anyone have issues with these models? I'm specifically concerned with the video cards. Please let me know which of the following cards work best: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 900, Integrated Radeon X200, 64MB ATI Mobility RADEON x300. Any issues with the Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG or 2915ABG? Will the embedded security subsytem chip require Linux drivers to function properly? Although I do not plan to get the fingerprint reader, I am curious if anyone has got it to work. Thanks for your help, Jed.
