Don't go with Lenovo, or anything with a built in Intel Graphics card because the drivers are hard to find. I tried to get UbuntuStudio on my Lenovo R61 and it was a Fail Whale. I still haven't found graphics or wireless drivers. The sound is terrible. I'm going to try get a new laptop with an Nvidia card in it.
