Another laptop question

I'm starting a PhD program in the fall and, while I have a fairly souped up desktop, I'm considering a laptop as well for taking to school and as a secondary toy. I would mostly be using it for presentations, word processing and the intarwebs, so graphics and audio are not super important. I'm not interested in a Mac at the moment, so those are out.
My dad works for IBM and we figured out a T42 with what I'd need would run me about $1100- through the employee purchase program. It's been so long since I bought a whole computer - and since I've had a laptop - that I'm not sure if this is a good deal or if I should look elsewhere.
Also - do you think I should get a laptop for grad school? Would I be perfectly happy with my desktop and a flash drive? It's a dilemma (or is it?).
