Sounds like reliability and a nice keyboard would be your highest priorities, so I second the suggestion for the used IBM, since they have great keyboards. OR, consider a used Dell Latitude. I use an old Latitude at work. It's only a Pentium III 1000, but it does anything I need to do at work just fine, and it seems to be built solid and is a joy to type on.
