I have an IBM ThinkPad T40 as well -- got it off eBay for $500 last summer. It's an excellent machine. The screen size is 14". With a standard 6-cell battery I get about 5-6 hours battery life...12 hours with the extended 9 cell. There's also a battery option that plugs in to the UltraBay slot (where the removable CD/DVD drive goes) that gives even more power. I've also got a 12 V car adapter, which I picked up for under $20. ThinkPads are usually pretty solid machines, and they usually have very Linux-compatible hardware. The only downside to it, is that IBM thought it would be good to try to force people to use only IBM-approved wireless cards in their laptops -- fortunately, there's a free BIOS patch (comes on a Linux live CD, so there's very little to screw up) that allows you to use any card in the Mini PCI slot (any PCMCIA card will work, naturally).
