Good laptop for programming?

Hello. I'm looking for a laptop for web development primarily so I'm looking for some suggestions.

I might add that I will be running Ubuntu Gnu/Linux, if that's relevant.

The one I have now is a Packard Bell easynote LE which seems to be pretty damn slow. I can't even watch 720p youtube videos on fullscreen without it lagging.

My main issue though is the keyboard. I really need a full, regular keyboard and I prefer hard keys as opposed to soft ones which this laptop has.

Screen size should be 17" with a minimum of 1440x900 resolution.

As far as performance, I'd like to be able to watch youtube videos in 720p without lag.

Thanks in advance :)
