install Linux won't avoid problems.
I've had three Linux laptops (Linux Certified, Dell
Latitude 630, Dell Inpiron 1420) in the last five
years. Only the Linux Certified box worked without a
lot of tinkering.
If your time is worth money you want to buy from a
vendor that will deal with the headaches even if you
get the Dell (at least one of the Linux laptop vendors
sells a couple Latitude models).
Lots of people who don't do that have all sorts of
problems. Just do a web search.
If Dell guaranteed a specific hardware configuration
went with a given SKU we wouldn't have these problems,
but they don't.
