It's that time for me again... my desktop is getting long in the tooth so I'm
starting to look around for a replacement. This time I thought I'd also
include laptops in my search. However, with laptops it's difficult to find

webcams, fingerprint scanners etc, fully supported? Is the power management

So, I resort to ask for advice on this mailing list.
What laptops should I have a look at?
Is there some brand (Dell, HP, ...) that is more Linux friendly than others?
