A friend on here has tthis exact laptop and loves it:

ThinkPad X220 12.5" Laptop | Shop | Lenovo | US

It has excellent battery life, and packed with goodness.
+1. I have had my x220 for a year now and absolutely love it. If you do get one be sure to spend the extra $50 to get the Premium LCD Display, it is an IPS panel and one of the best displays available in a laptop.

I would also go for the 9 cell battery, it doesn't make the system to large or heavy and you can get 9-10 hours of battery life from it.

Here is another link in case you need it, the original doesn't seem to work for me.

You can get an i5 or i7 in the x220. IMO the T420 is a downgrade, it isn't any faster, has worse battery life, and a vastly inferior screen.
