Would Lenovo Thinkpad X220 be a good choice for a small company?

I'm considering buying a new laptop as my current laptop only has an Intel Celeron M processor so I need something faster. The most important for me is that it's reasonably fast (not for playing games, only for researching on internet, for running a lot of software simultaneously such as translation software and electronic dictionaries and for office tasks such as bookkeeping). And also that it's stable and I can have a lot of different programs installed. Sound should also be pretty good, and the keyboard should be comfortable.

Although I would like to purchase this Lenovo Thinkpad X220, I found out that it has problems with CPU:

Can anyone give me pros and cons for purchasing this laptop? And tell me if the CPU-problem would be a regular annoyance or if it can be worked around someway (as is suggested in the link above)?

    We have issues with that same PC, the computer sometimes hangs on startup, the issue is on all of these laptops. Lenovo are exelent usualy but on this case they are a bit of a pain im afraid

    Some other laptop brands and models I'm also considering are these:

    Sony Vaio EB 15", Toshiba Satellite Pro L670 17", Sony Vaio VPCS111fm/s.

    Anyone of those that has problems with CPU?

    Also, one more thing that's really important for me is perfect and stable internet connectivity, both wired and Wi-Fi. The old laptop I use now (HP Compaq nx7300) doesn't work very well with Wi-Fi but perhaps most new laptops will have no such problems, or?
