I've had ASUS laptops the last few goes. They've been surprisingly
tolerable. The one I've got now is a "UL20A". I'm rather pleased with
it. Low voltage chip and Intel graphics. Yeay.

The bigger learning was discovering that some bright sparks have set up
mailing lists for laptop families running (in this case) Canonical's
Ubuntu Linux. Mine is:
https://launchpad.net/~asus-ul30

There appear to be similar "teams" for other laptop families, so in
aggregate, these might be a good source of information as to current
laptop support across the spectrum.
