Anything without an Nvidia video card should do what you are looking for. 
Not an hp because that is what I have and ubuntu never booted and installed 
I just got a wave across the screen. Suse installed fine on it however but 
orca never worked. Anything else should work just fine. Just as I said watch 
out for the Nvidia cards.
