What is the best laptop I can buy in the budget price class $500? Something that would suit a small business with preinstalled Windows 7 Ultimate. I'm thinking of Lenovo ThinkPad E420.

Most important: reasonably quick processor, comfortable keyboard, no CPU-problems, system generally stable, minimum 15 inch screen, good internet connection, durable.

I live in mainland China so brands like Toshiba etc. could also come into question as it would be easy to have it serviced here. But probably it will be as easy with a brand like Lenovo or any other Western brand to have serviced in Asia (China, Hong Kong, Thailand, The Philippines)?

There are many different models and configurations listed here.
Not only does Newegg have prices that are hard to beat. But each item is given a rating by actual customers (both good and bad).
Newegg's service, shipping and return policies are great as well. If nothing else you can get a price benchmark of what you may be interested in against other vendor prices.
