[PLUG] Laptop recommendations

Hey all,

A friend of mine is looking to buy a new laptop(*) with a budget of
roughly 1000-1200 USD. Obviously, this device will run
$YOUR_FAVORITE_DISTRO Linux. It's purpose is not to do heavy computing
but mostly use it for what your grandma would use it for: i.e. browsing,
listening to music, some minor photo editing and -but this is
aspirational- maybe some video editing.

What are the recommendations for laptops these days and what are some
common pitfalls that could prevent putting Linux on it?
We've looked at System76 and I think he's looked at those offered by
Costco but he was underwhelmed by all of them.

(*) chromebooks are not an option
