Currently I am looking at Asus and HP-Compaq notebooks.
I don't need wide-screen and high-performance 3d graphics, but
I like to have good build quality, and Dell doesn't deliver
it (I still have a Dell Inspiron 3800, and while it did the job,
it looks crappy). I read that ASUS are among the best (I am
considering ASUS F2F). The HP-Compaq I am investigating are the
nc6320 and nc6400. Any experiences with these?

I'm using FC6 on an Asus Z92U (or A6000U depending which
documents/parts you look at). It came with a SiS graphics card which
IMO sucks under linux (no opengl), though other versions with the same
model number have different graphics cards. Otherwise, everything
"just works", even the ipw2200 wireless.
