Thats the wrong way around ;) Search for a notebook you like and check for Linux compatibility. By the way: I have a Acer 7750g (has 1 ssd as boot and 1 hdd) with an AMD Radean 6650. Works flawlessly. Install of 12.10 took me a whole 9 minutes ;) – Rinzwind Oct 4 '12 at 9:32

Linux laptop is a site that collects reports on how linux runs on different laptops. It seams to have a bit dated info tough.

I suggest that rather than asking for computer brand/model that fits the description and runs linuks a-okay, choose models that you like and you can afford. Then google for info about them running linux.

Looks like the info there is really old, some no longer accessible. – mikewhatever Oct 4 '12 at 10:38
