If you like HP's, Slackware installs and runs out of the box on these 2 I've played with recently:
14-cf0018ca (with SSD)
15-bs028ca
Also, I'll second the Lenovo.

I'll second both Lenovo and Dell's Latitude series.
Been running -current on a Lenovo Ideapad U330p (Intel i5, 8GB RAM) for almoust four years and have never had any issues. My office laptops (until retirement earlier this year) were Latitudes (running windows) and I found them very reliable hardwarewise.

Although I have not had issues with any major brand - my personal preference is the Lenovo Thinkpad series due to the keyboard and they also tend to have good hardware - not the cheapest though.

T430s
T440

About to install it on a P50, hopefully this weekend.

I run 14.1 on this Lenovo T530, 14.2 on a T510, and -current on another T510, all without problems. They JFW with default settings.

When I looked at the Lenovo P73, it had three options for graphics devices (integrated or either of two add-on cards), and it wasn't clear to me if -current would work with any of them. That model might need the 5.4 kernel, but I don't know.

I wouldn't recommend anything from the HP Pavilion range. My 15-ab269sa has a couple of issues which I believe to be BIOS related:
  1. key release events can be lost, resulting in what looks like a stuck key but isn't.
  2. the wifi rfkill hard blocks rather than soft blocks on sleep, which means there's no way to restart wifi on wake as a hard block can't be unblocked from software.
I mostly use an external keyboard, and don't use sleep so I avoid the both issues for the most part, but it's still annoying.
