Over all, there are a good few in all the bad bunches, powerbok 160's, G3's, R&T 31-60's, MX series, Portege tablet series, Travelmates, & a few laditudes are even good...
^ Speaking of Dell, some of the XPS models are really pretty cool. They use magnesium for the chassis/lower casing and back of the lid. It looks like plastic, but it's not. Asus has a few like that as well, I believe. I loved my M1210's design, though it had a problem with a mismatched heatsink revision. That thing to this day has the best trackpad and mouse button feel that I've ever used, Macbooks included. They also managed to stuff a 2GHz C2D, Centrino chipset, and a Geforce Go 7400 into a 12" case, and give it 5-6 hours of battery life. Not bad for an '06 design.

I have an HP, and it's great. Not a single problem with it.

As for the IBM keyboard, I'm using a model M2 right now. Just push CTRL+ESC. Tada, instant windows key :P
