Hope someone can help a new convert to Ubuntu. Iam part of team designing accredited free in the home distance based literacy and computer courses. Though literacy is the main focus we want to provide a laptop as a resource along with introducing computing and advanced tutorials using all the resources provided by Ubuntu. Linux Ubuntu is a perfect fit with our philosophy. I installed Ubuntu 8.04 on a Toshiba Satellite P100 and was amazed to say the least, turned it on and it worked without any extra effort from me!! Thanks Linux community whomever you are.
So to my question, Iam researching mid quality laptop brands suitability using Ubuntu and am a bit stumped crawling through the web, I found a wiki somewhere with tested brands but was wondering from any users here there thoughts.
