Laptop recomidations


I am looking at getting a Laptop this summer. It is going to be a pure Linux machine. I was wondering what would be the best choice for the best compatibility. I am willing to send about 700 bucks (would be happy to send less for an older machine.) What brand would you all recommend? Does not have to be new.

Dell Latitude models are pretty easy to set up - try the D600 for starters.

Cheers,

I am presently on my IBM Thinkpad A30 running XP (I have to...).

I have loaded knoppix on this system in the past and everything worked quite nicely. All of it, including sound and wireless networking.
