I was and am still looking for a notebook/laptop/desknote. (Amd64)
A local dealer mentioned to me http://eurocom.com in Ottawa. They sell
these without o/s and have anything between "entry level notebooks" and
"mobile workstation".
Under "support" they have a Linux Compatibility Chart , a bit outdated.
