 From experience, Dell's are pretty good if you get one with Intel 
Wireless (my old Dell Latitude D610 worked perfectly).  You might want 
to look at the Dell Inspiron 1525 (I think it is), do a search on Dell's 
web site for Ubuntu and you should find it.

My other half and my dad both have IBM Thinkpad R50e Notebooks, they 
both run fine with Ubuntu.

I'm still trying to decide what to get (I'm leaning towards HP, Acer or 
Dell) but I won't be ordering a laptop for a week or so, but when I do 
I'll post a mini review.
