X230 if you'd ask me: 16G RAM, 12M ROM. runs fine with reduced (830K) ME
and has a powerful Ivy Bridge CPU. USB3.0, miniDisplayPort as well as
docking station has been working just fine for me although handling
suspend/resume as well as mounted external storage *can* be somewhat
tricky (in some scenarios the X230 would instantly resume from suspend
after having been docked once).

Battery life under linux has been somewhere around 8 hours for me,
OpenBSD gets about 5-6 out of it but YMMV.

The X series never features more than one disk bay, but this again
depends on your use case: I'm totally fine with an 120G SSD, other
people prefer a RAID on their W/T model ThinkPads.

Best regards,
