Take a copy of Knoppix and/or Ubuntu on CD/DVD with you, ask the salesguy to reboot from it and simply try If the salesguy doesn't want to cooperate, it's time to find another shop.

Great idea, but I have yet to find any distro that's fully functional with laptops out of the box.
Flip side: I I would think that most mainstream laptops can be made to work

Suspend almost always works without issues. It does on a brand new HP dv9820us.

As long as the motherboard supports it, linux can do it too.
