IMHO, IBM Thinkpad ... also important, the laptop Hardware Maintenance
Manuals, BIOS and Driver updates are available online. Checkout:

http://www-3.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-39298.html
http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/TPAD-MATRIX.html

ThinkPad components remain available for several years.

Do not all the majors, e.g., Dell, Sony and Toshiba also have such info and
software online?

Most newer notebooks have the modem integrated on the mainboard. Most neweer
notebooks are very simple to exchange the RAM (at least one of two modules)
and HD on also.
