Dell D4xx.


At least it has the Pentium M processor, so you will get better battery life then the rest of the garbage you listed.
Personally, I have a D410 at work and its a work horse.

Get this one.

Refurb is better then used, the seller has a lot of feedback, even offers 30 day return.
Add another 512mb of ram, and its good to go.

It has a Pentium 3 - "M" which was better then a normal CPU, but still garbage.
Centrino really was the biggest leap forward when it came to low power consumption processors/chipsets from intel.

Plus the D410 has a built in CD which is better then having the dock. especially when the dimension and weight difference is marginal.

Oh my bad. It sits in a dock all the time, so I thought it was built into the machine.

Worst comes to worst if you need a CD drive, you can get an external one for 30 bucks.
