    Question Suggestions wanted: middle-range laptop with good Linux support

    Sorry if the title comes over as spammy...

    Hi, I'm looking for a decent laptop that has (close to) full hardware support with latest stable Ubuntu (Karmic). I tried looking on the net, but am washed away with the amount of information I get and haven't actually found anything matching my requirements yet.

    Requirements are:

    - The system should be dual-core (or better).
    - It should have a decent graphics chipset that's (going to be) well supported (I prefer NVidia/ATI over Intel, unless good reasoning is given why Intel would be the better chipset in your recommendation).
    - Budget is 500 euros at most (can be a little bit higher if you're giving good reasons).
    - Have a DVD writer (this is standard in pretty much any laptop, but rules out netbooks).

    My goal is to find a laptop with decent specs that will last me for at least a few years, being able to run the occasional CPU or graphics intensive app when needed (games usually through Wine).

    Thanks in advance for helping!
