You will not get any help from Dell, Gateway, EMachines, Lenovo, Sony,
or Toshiba either. There are a couple of companies that do provide
Linux preinstalled on laptops, but none of the major vendors do.

Actually, HP has a page where they list laptops that are certified with
Linux. There is the URL for the SuSE certification.

It would be nice if HP (and other vendors) would support Linux on their
retail products, but there are some very good business reasons why they
are not.

BTW: HP (through their Digital purchase) has been involved with Linux
and Linus Torvalds since 1993.
