[ltp] Too many choices!

I've been without a Thinkpad for much too long and was starting to
  shop for my next one, but realized I had no idea anymore...  I
  usually shop on eBay but I don't know which models to look at.  I
  need something that won't break the bank, but reasonably peppy, a
  spacious hard drive, not too old, and plays nicely with Linux.
  Usually my budget likes computers with no OS installed, but it
  wouldn't break my heart if I didn't have to do an installation.  
    My favorite Thinkpad was the X61S, which had no trackpad, just the
    trackpoint and a little mouse button cluster.  Before that, I
    always had a line in the start-up to disable the trackpad because I
    tend to touch it by mistake and do unintended things. My husband
    always did that tweak for me; he is gone now and I won't know how to
    do it...  

   I am just looking for recommendations for which models to search
   for.  If there's one with no trackpad but newer than my old one, I'd
   want to look at that first.  Ideas?
