As Chris pointed out, be aware of the type of video chipset. I have
a HP pavilion ze1110 notebook which runs X well, but I am unable to
run xine until a future patch makes it possible. If you need to run
xine for any reason, I recommend not purchasing a laptop with the 
Via (S3) ProSavage AGP 3D (a.k.a. Twister) chipset. 

Otherwise, for a $1000 US the HP pavilion make for a great linux
notebook for use with USB scanners, digital cameras, PDAs, ect...
