Which laptop to buy?

I want to spend about $2000.00 (USD) on an ultraportable (or close to ultraportable) laptop. Or I want to spend $1000 on a laptop. Too many options are making my head spin, so talk me through this, please?

The Dell XPS M1330 looks good, but what else would give me more bang for the buck? Plus, it seems to come only with Windows Vista, and I think I'd prefer XP. Maybe I should just get a Dell D630? Or do I want a Thinkpad?
I know I want a smaller (12-13 inch diagonal screen), and a full keyboard that doesn't require holding down function keys to use the up-down arrows, etc.
The truth is, I'm probably going to be using this principly for web browsing, and some minor coding. Should I just get a cheap laptop?
