[PLUG] Ultrabook for Linux Recommendations?

Good Afternoon!

I need to buy a compact type notebook. I was wondering if anyone has experience trying to put Linux on any of the ultrabooks (Lenovo, Dell, ASUS, etc.).  The main purpose of the notebook will be android and java development. (Eclipse and Android Studio)

Preferred specs:
- Arch Linux
- Intel i7 CPU
- Intel or Nvida GPU (Never had great luck with AMD/ATI)
- 8gb RAM (or so)
- 500gb+ mechanical HD

I strongly prefer Lenovo but I haven't been able to find anyone that has successfully made Linux fully work on those ultrabooks.  Dell seems to be the most Linux friendly but my last two company laptops have been Dells and I have been far from impressed. Any ideas? Your help would be greatly appreciated.
