FullHD is 1080p (progressive) so you will need a laptop that can handle

Sure... I know... just don't know how to figure out before buying and trying
if a FullHD Sony notebook will work with Debian. No need to work without
kernel recompilation. I'm specially concerned about opengl/graphics
acceleration. The vesa driver is not a real option.
If 1920x1080 is what you want/need, then look for a laptop that uses Nvidia.
Note though, that the current trend is for a combo of Intel IGP for
low-power needs + Nvidia for gaming ang video. Currently, though, only
the most bleeding edge .39 kernels and x.org versions support it.
