Alternative options to a Lenovo T410/T510

I'm in the market for a new laptop. I've always had Lenovo/Thinkpads for personal use and work. After sorting through their website. I've come up with the following.

Lenovo T410
2 X 2GB
500GB HD
14" Screen HD+ (1440x900)
Win 7 x64

I'd like to know of some other models by other brands that are compatible to this model. Specifically I'm looking for compatible laptops with the same or preferably greater resolution as the T410. I keep finding 15" laptops that look great but have a resolution of 1366×768.

Also one of the big reasons I'm sticking with think-pad is the TrackPoint mouse. I know some Toshibas and Dells have also had the little trackpoint nubs. Yet are there any new models from brands other then Lenovo that have a TrackPoint?
