Which 12'' Laptop should I buy so that I can install Linux on it...
 
Hi I planning To buy a 12 inch screen Laptop I have three of options
1. IBM X Series
2. Toshiba Protege
3. HP Tablet

I want to try various flavors of linux / BSD on this new laptop. Which of three is most compatible . If anybody is already using linux on any off these models I would highly appreciate if someone could write their experience ? Any help ( links/ other reosurces ) is welcome.

My last two laptops were hp and I haven't had any serious problems with them. I mean I did have problems but it was more due to ATI's proprietary drivers. 99% of the hardware was nicely recognised out of the box.
That's just my personal experience, though.
