Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I always buy generic, house-brand, type computers rather than brand names. Check PCClub.com or lots of other places. PCClubs house-brand is "EnPower". There are lots of others tho.

Apart from that possibility, everything just works.
I would actually rate HP, Dell, as the least compatible. Toshiba and Fujitsu are more compatible than the american brands.
