Subject: What's the most Linux-ready laptop? Date: 9/21/2012 6:31 AM

I've been using Dell for years, the latest being my nearly 4-year old Inspiron 1420, and have switched from Ubuntu to Linux Mint about two years back.

Even with the latest versions of Ubuntu / Mint, basic stuff like Bluetooth and the built in camera still don't work. I'd hoped they'd catch up on such simple things by now.

Since I'm looking at replacing my laptop, do you folks know of any laptop brands which are more Linux-ready out of the box? Is Lenovo one of them by any chance?

In printers, at least, HP seems to be relatively more Linux-ready out of the box than, say, Canon, with which I suffered for two years until Ubuntu caught up with its MX-318 model.

TIA for your help :)
