The Thinkpad T430 is a good one to look at - 14", 13 hours of battery life with the 9-cell, an option for a 1600x900 screen, a nice keyboard, and an option for Windows 7. If I were getting a laptop for myself as a main machine, it would be 14", which I personally feel is the best balance of usability and portability. That said, I've been happy with my 11" x120e (note that it's really a netbook though), and the x131e and x230 are good smaller options.
