I've heard nothing but good things about the GNU/Linux-compatibility and hardware escellence of IBM Thinkpads...

Can you buy OS-less Thinkpads? If you've got the cash, go for a Thinkpad.

For the best WINE performance, I recommend getting something new (>2GHz, DDR) and double check to see if the built in WIFI is supported by the kernel you choose.
