Hello everyone,

I'm looking to buy a new laptop and I would really like to give Ubuntu another try. I've had problems with hardware support before, particularly wireless networking and sound, and I really want to buy a laptop that will work out of the box with Ubuntu 10.04 or 10.10. I've ruled out a few already by Googling, and I'm currently thinking about the Lenovo IdeaPad U450 (it's mentioned in this thread (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1569786&highlight=U450)). Does anyone have any experience with this laptop? I've checked the laptop compatibility thread.

Also, other suggestions for $500 or cheaper laptops welcome. I'm based in the UK.

Thanks in advance,

Will
