I have found that Acer laptops work reasonably well under Ubuntu (or 
Xubuntu as I use). They seem to have decentish Synaptics touchpads etc 
and more or less as advertised battery life - so long as one uses the 
latest kernel or one from awhile back. There was a power handling 
regression that snuck in which has only recently been fixed.
