If there's a local PC store, I'd take a linux live CD with me and try it out on a bunch of the machines. See what works and what doesn't work on each machine and keep a record.

You could also go to the vendors websites, and see 'if' or 'what' they have certified for Linux.. would giva an indication which products would be better choices than others for running Linux.

HP Linux

IBM Linux

Dell Linux

for apple I think you want to search for 'Linux Boot Camp'
