I would definitely consider another Lenovo when the time comes for a personal hardware refresh.
Ubuntu has a certified hardware page, with some of the most recent Lenovo and Dell laptops identified, if you're interested:
^Hope this helps.

I've had three laptops from there, for myself and family, and have had almost no problems with them (I've had a slight issue with one touchpad not being a synaptics one, but sentelic, and the driver had a few bugs) - I also run Fedora exclusively.
Best of all, they're based in the UK and have a few stores dotted around the UK as well as the usual internet shop.
If I were to say anything bad about them, the laptop housings on some of their own-branded machines feels a little cheap and flimsy, but I fortunately haven't dropped one yet to find out if this is actually the case.
(You can also play on the website and see how much they add on to the prices for Windoze - for example, one PC at £290 with no OS is as much as £690 with Win7 ultimate + office2010!)
