I've had great success with my laptop with ubuntu preisntalled from
system76, http://system76.com/.  Everything works out of the box, from
wireless to suspend and hibernate, and its nice to support a linux
only company.  They've also provided great support -- if I don't know
how to configure something I just email or call and get a quick
response with GUI-based directions for my particular machine and
distribution.  They have their own section on ubuntuforums and the
community is full of praise for them.  Certainly worth checking out.
