Okay, so I'm looking for a laptop. I want a PC that has full capabilities to run Linux (Ubuntu). I'm thinking of getting an HP because of all the great things I've heard. I'd like an i3 or i5 processor or an AMD Phenom. I'm going to be doing web design and some Photoshop and video editing. Although I need a computer that will last a while even if someday I'll want to switch to hard core video editing or something. I've been looking at something like this one:
I like the idea of having a fingerprint reader in the laptop, too. Although I know it wouldn't work with Ubuntu.

I'd go for an HP/Compaq, the minimum graphics card that you will want would be an ATI Radeon 4200.
The minimum processor you will want would be a 2.1ghz Dual Core, steer clear from Pentiums and Celerons.
At least 2GB of RAM, preferably 4GB.
No Hard Drive below 160gb.
