Another option, not sure if you'd thought of is to have a look at
laptops in the right price range and then search online to see if anyone
has had any problems with Ubuntu. I did that when choosing a laptop. I
was going to go for an eiSystem laptop from PC World for about £300 but
found it had god awful Linux support so instead I got my little Acer
Aspire 2920 (with 12.1" widescreen screen so bigger than a netbook but
small enough that it is compact and easy to carry around, and it has a
pretty good spec besides). Only issue is the Windows refund. I know
Acer do offer a Windows refund but it requires sending the laptop to
their service centre in Plymouth. Personally I kept Windows (despite
the fact the service centre is about a 40 mile round trip from where I
live so I could have dropped it off).
