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)?

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?
