I'm looking to buy a laptop, and wanting it to come with Ubuntu (or another linux) already installed. I'm confused, though, about whether just any laptop will do.

I see laptops for sale through Dell, System76, and other vendors that come with Ubuntu, and they beat the minimum Ubuntu requirements and are in my price range.

But are there some that are better or worse? Are there review sites that are current? (I've seen some that are older, but they don't list the current models or the vendors I'm looking at).
