I've been really impressed with the couple of older Toshiba's we just
picked up.  They're pretty seamless to get Linux running on, and are
pretty ergonomic.  I know everyone is going to start yelling VAIO, though.

Also, the zipslack distro is a good way to make the translation from Wxx
to Linux, because it uses the UMSDOS fs, and you don't have to

But you probably knew all that...
