I have a T420s (with SSDs!), and I love it... except for the battery life, which is abysmal in Ubuntu 11.10. By default, using the nVidia graphics, it gets around an hour. If you add a magic grub flag,  you get something like 2 hours (using Unity; I use Openbox and get 30 extra minutes). If you enable RC6 power management,  you should get something approximating reasonable battery life, but you will need to switch to the Intel graphics, and it is quite buggy in 11.10, so you'll need to upgrade your kernel manually or wait for 12.04. So the T420s is a great machine for developing code, but I can't recommend it for your stated battery life goals. :( Cheers, Josh  GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash pcie_aspm=force"  http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=article&item=intel_i915_power&num=1
