The ONLY brand I can recommend for Debian (and in general) is IBM!
They provide good support for Open Source projects (Linux Kernel!) --
this must be honored, and Linux simply runs on every IBM Laptop I have
seen so far without any pain.

However, I spent a couple of days already just installing fucked up
Dells and Compaqs...  I do not know of any real support by them for
the Open Source development! (Maybe they provide servers, but common,
this is just a gadget.  Real support is development-man-power)

However, it's up to you!
