So, Im getting ready to replace my Lenovo G570 Sandybridge workhorse/Linux machine.

I have been looking in the 500-850 USD range but need some opinions. I have found some cool laptops on Newegg and one really seemed like a killer deal until I saw the review where they said installing another OS like Linux was essentially impossible. I really need it to support installing other OSes and that the hardware would work with Linux with as little hiccup as possible. Im going to list of the machines I have seen and am open to suggestions. At this point, I am brand agnostic.

I will separate by Brand:
