I'm in the market for a new laptop, but haven't been researching much can
you make some suggestions, or especially some ideas of what to avoid?

Some notes about me, and my preferences:
I love a nipple mouse like on a thinkpad.
My fingers and capacitive touchpads are not always friends.
I'd rather have MOAR pixels than a bigger screen, my current thinkpad has a
1680x1050 screen at 15".
I'll need about 6+ hours of battery life for the occasional
cross-continental flight.
I'd like a 13 or 14" screen up to about 15".

I'll need a decent camera for skype/google hangouts, and bluetooth for PAN
and headset connectivity.

Any suggestions?
