in general - any modern laptop will run debian fine [with any DE you

I'd add, "avoid Broadcom if you want to use WiFi"--it requires some extra
steps for installation (and is even more of a pain until you realize that is
what you need to do)"

Until the last 18 months i would have agreed but they hired one of the leading kernal gfx hackers
and now forced by the Pi market are supporting newer stuff. Enough to come off my black list, however i'm keeping an eye on them to see if they relapse.
