Here are some resources for choosing a laptop to use with Linux.

This is also a relatively frequent question here at linuxquestions.org, so a search of the forums might also be beneficial.

One way is to look at general reviews to see which seems a good buy, and then to look for it on this forum or using www.google.com/linux. That way you'll see if people have been having any trouble with it.
