eeePC's with model #'s 900<X<1010 and most Acer Aspire One's do well with Puppy > 3.0.1 Lots of these used in the usual places on-line. Many used ones come with Ubuntu or Mint already installed.

Naturally, best thing about Puppy is if NO or borqed HDD, a USB stick solves.

Good evening, Could you please suggest me the most Linux compatible Laptop brand-(s)? I am thinking of buying a new average laptop. As I know there was a brand which brought in the market a laptop machine designed for Linux Ubuntu as the default OS. I think it was Lenovo, am I right? But please if you could suggest me other brands also it would be very helpfull. Currently I have an Acer Aspire 5050 which I bought on 2007 including Windows Vista. The latter software caused huge problems. I had to took them out and I installed Linux. I begun with Ubuntu 7.10 untill today where I use Linux Mint 17. Laptop still works perfect thanks to Linux. So this is what I am planning to do again. Buy a laptop (I hope If I will find a store which sells laptops without OS) and use any Linux flavour. Thank you in advance for your time and your advices Plex Kodi Lucky Patcher

Here is a thread that discusses some laptops, how they worked and how to tweak if they didn't.

And Darryl has been putting together a page for older laptops.
