Really it comes down to preference. I personally in this day and age would buy a strong desktop, and a netbook, for travel. Netbooks and laptops have "Linlap" A wiki site that tells you what laptops work best with what distros. 
If you need a linux build, i can send you a parts list for a PC, that should  work for linux.  Laptop wise, again i refer you to linlap.
