You can try looking at:
and looking at the mailing list archives for how functional the Linux port is. Werner Almesberger uses his Series 5 on trips etc. and has written a couple of mini reports on it, and how he has fared with it.

Hope that helps,
P.S. I have calmed down a bit now, I just saw that Dabs sell the Vaio PCG-C1 for £1155 stlng.
