Would you like it delivered by Santa or the Easter Bunny?  :)

Dell sells a few laptops w/Ubuntu preloaded, meaning it's also supported 
and things work.

Having said that, I haven't tried any of them.  Only the consumer lines 
come with Ubuntu and I am using a few of their commercial jobbies.  But 
I put Ubuntu on them and they all work so I know they can.

STAY AWAY from smaller than normal laptops.  As cheap as laptops are, 
these are cheaper.  You probably already know this but get lots of RAM.

Good luck.
