I'm in the market for a new small form factor laptop to run Ubuntu on. Lenovo has just launched the x120e (http://shop.lenovo.com/SEUILibrary/controller/e/web/LenovoPortal/en_US/catalog.workflow:category.details?current-catalog-id=12F0696583E04D86B9B79B0FEC01C087&current-category-id=C63BB22720313B14F5906FFA72CB90D5) and it seems as a good piece of hardware for the price. Does anyone know if it's the hardware is Ubuntu-compatible? I don't need bluetooth, webcam and other peripherals.

For reference:
AMD Fusion Processor E-240 (1.5Ghz, 512KB L2, 1.0GHz FSB) 2.0GT/s
AMD Radeon HD 6310 Graphics, AMD Fusion Processor E-240 (1.5Ghz, 512KB L2, 1.0GHz FSB) 2.0GT/s
The rest is pretty standard Lenovo and and should work.

Thanks
Søren

I'm looking at either a T410 or higher end X120e. They are known for their compatibility with the most crucial components, however I heard a comment from someone on here that the Thinkpad wifi is not great. They recommended an Intel Cetrino card. That option is configurable on some models but not that x120e unfortunately. If I find evidence that the wireless on the x120e is good then I'll probably get that.
