My old notebook wont there very long, I feel like. And Im looking for a higher-end notebook that will run Ubuntu out of the box. Unfortunately, a trackpoint mouse is absolutely mandatory for me. I know almost all Dell Latitudes have one, but which else (except for the Thinkpads)?

Does anyone have more information/experience on which notebooks do have a trackpoint and which dont?

My Thinkpads run excellent with Linux, even faster than with windows. The trackpoint, suspend on lid closing, wifi, webcam, everything but the fingerprint reader works.
