Try your luck with System 76. Seems that a lot of people have 
had good luck with them. Comes with Ubuntu.

The Dell XPS 12 has linux preinstalled 
The screen resolution sucks though.

I just ordered a Thinkpad X1 Carbon Touch. It comes with Windows 7 Pro
preinstalled. The regular Thinkpad X1 Carbons supposedly work well
with GNU/Linux. I am hoping that the Touch will work equally as well.
It's light an powerful. Touch screen will probably be a little gimicky.
It uses the Intel video. It weighs 3.4 pounds. The memory is soldered to
the board as well as the CPU. It has a 1600x900 screen too!
