@Ken: My recommendation is to repair the T420. Unless you're doing heavy processing tasks or graphical work, it'll be more than enough for office work. Repairing the hinge will also be cheaper than buying a new laptop, and the T420 will keep on kicking for a long time.
Or upgrade to a T430 and swap out the keyboard if you're a little more daring (requires a BIOS flash). I'd honestly avoid anything after the T430 - it'll all feel like a downgrade from the T420.

@Sam Medley:  Thank you.  Took your advice and replaced the hinge on my T420s, reconnected the screen port to the video cable (which had partially disconnected when the hinge broke) and viola!  It works.  Then set the nvidia graphics card as the only graphics source, thereby avoiding the Intel graphics chip entirely, and screen brightness improved.  No need yet for a newer T series or X series. Thanks.
