If you want to buy a laptop with LInux pre-installed you should forget
about the major vendors and go with one of the small vendors who specialize in Linux. Los Alamos Computers sells
linux laptops and will preinstall Debian, RedHat, Mandrake, Suse,
Slackware. The fact that various distros and vendors "certify" that their hardware/distro "works" with Linux means little unless you probe what this certification means. In particular you might ask whether key laptop
features such as suspend to disk ("sleep") are certified to work. This hardware specific feature requires considerable expertise.
LAC's laptops have suspend to disk that actually works.
