OS Transfer?

hello guys this may seem like a bit of a stupid question but I'm running a vm of opensuse 11 on windows xp is there anyway to transfer opensuse to a new laptop as the primary/only os? because I'm going to get a new laptop and if at all possible would like to not have to build it again thanks
P.S anyone know of an up to date list anywhere of laptops compatiability for linux? there's not really much on the opensuse site

Hi TB,
Is this what you're looking for? I don't know about up to date but it's pretty complete.

I suggest you install a backup tool on your virtual machine, and then restore the backup on the laptop. Choose a backup option that backups the entire system, not just files. I guess mindi/mondo does this, and some more other tools. Just check your repositories.
