I saw on Gentoo users list where Dell was recommended. If you plan to
buy a new one, tell them you will be using Linux and everything has to
be hardware based. I seem to recall that at one time, Dell sold systems
with Linux on it already. Those were mostly servers and it has been a
while so they may not now.
I would find out what kind of hardware it has and just Google for the
drivers and see if they are available. There are several sites that
list what is supported.
