HP Laptops

Apparently HP is dedicated to making sure there laptops run perfectly with Ubuntu. My work laptop is an HP nc4010 (not one of the ones listed, but contains basically all the same hardware) and I can verify that it works incredibly with linux (I've got Gentoo on mine).

This weekend I'm going to try out Ubuntu on here, just to see how it goes.

Awesome news.
It's about time a manufactuer decided to at least offer computers without windows. If custom partitioning is the reason they won't pre-install Ubuntu. In any case, it will likely be a cheaper price and any distro can be installed.
