Acer are knocking out some good laptops of late, the Travelmate 3000 [laptopical.com] has just won a red dot design award and would fit nicely in the lightweight category you're looking for.
A great new Thinkpad is the X41, weighs only 2 and a half pounds, and has a built in finger print reader.
Toshiba notebooks are also worth a look. My Toshiba P10 has never let me down, and has one of the crispest screens I've ever seen on a laptop. A bit of a knee-breaker though.
A tiny alternative is the Libretto U100 [laptopical.com] - Weighs around 2 pounds.
Then add Virtual PC and a USB sync cable for the iPAQ 6315 and you would have one nice mobile platform. The only thing I havent been able to do is do a usb rom upgrade for my iPAQ. This works great for everything UNLESS (of course there's an unless) you are a windows video game developer... Then your kind of on your own there :-)
My home laptop is a emachine, and it is a good machine, but lacks the construction quality that the IBM has. My next hom emachine will be an IBM for sure. I love the thing. Strong, lightweight and can take a bump or two.
