Linux Compatibility? What are the best current laptops to choose from? Any experience? I'm thinking Novatech for a new laptop, I won't use Windows anyway

That makes sense. I needed to recommend a laptop for a new position so I didn’t have much time to research. I’ve decided to take the risk as “Ya’see, it’s all Intel”. If it doesn’t work out I’ll install Windows on it until the hardware is supported. I’m going to try Ubuntu unless anyone has any specific experience that undermines that.
