I have 2 Dell laptops running Fedora 11, but, there is no way your going to find all those features in one laptop.

HP sells laptops with Linux pre-installed.

From my personal trials and tribulations---if you buy and then install Linux---- I'd recommend getting Intel wireless and NVidia graphics. Both companies now do an excellent job of Linux support.
