I'm happy with my HP Pavilion, but wireless and sound are a hassle to get working.

I am very happy with my HP Compaq nx6310, too bad they don't sell them anymore. :(

I like the look of the Dell XPS M1330 but cheaper lower spec options are available.

My HP Pavilion 2500 works great, except for a problem with the sound if you reboot from Windows into Linux without shutting down.

If you can use ubuntu for work, I suggest either zareason or system76.

Well, an Asus Eee PC is the cheapest and it runs Debian Etch right out of the box. Guess what I am using right now?

See this: http://aeronetworks.ca/eeepc-howto.html for hacking the Eeep!
