Phoronix: What Laptops Would You Like To See Tested On Linux?
If you have been curious how a particular laptop is performing on Linux, now is your chance to voice your request as I will be buying two laptops this week for Phoronix testing and benchmarking under Linux...
Dell xps 13 sputnik with haswell
The latter comes with Linux preinstalled. The first is very powerful, but the qhd screen might not work very well with Linux.
Just don't pick another Apple notebook.
Dell's XPS 12 2-in-1 Ultrabook. Either with Sputnik or maybe lets see how the OpenSUSE fares on this hybrid toy.

HP Elitebook G1: strong, lightweight, inexpensive, very easy maintenance. The 840 model has an Haswell i7 and a switchable Intel / Radeon and is full HD.
chromebooks with standard linux distros on them
The cheap and full of features (touch) "ultrabook" from asus. I really love them, but never saw them running linux.
It is not a laptop but it has laptop hardware.
I was thinking about Intel NUC Kit D54250WYK.
Laptops from the HP envy line would be interesting.
(15 and 17 inch)
Comparison of laptops with Core i7 and only builtin Intel graphics and laptops with Core i7 with discrete card.
Also comparison of laptops with Core i5+builtin Intel graphics and with discrete graphics card.
Laptops with the new APU's from AMD.
This is the most advanced convertible at the moment, especially cause of its screen resolution. It were awseome to find out how it performs, also from a touch point of view.
