After going with Thinkpad, I will never use any other kind. There are types like the T400s that run SSD's and have the wide screen. Though, the T400s is nearly outdated with the ol' core2duo. I upped my game with an I7 x220, but it is a smaller size laptop.
If I were not using a Thinkpad, I would consider Dell, and no others. 4gb's or more RAM is a #1 in my opinion, and I always use SSD.
P.s. Some specific CPU's will not allow for the virtualization of 64bit Archs. You should research your final decisions before you actually buy to make sure it will be fully compatible.
