local linux laptop

We have found room in our budget to spend about $1K on a laptop, and as 
luck would have it, PCs for Everyone is selling such a machine 
(, with about the same 
computing horsepower as the (three-year-old) desktop machine I'm using 
now.  Has anyone else tried using this machine (or others in the same 
line -- I assume they have the same motherboard) with Linux?  Are there 
better deals out there?

I want to get a 802.11b card along with the laptop. The only kind PC4E 
sells is D-Link DWL-650, which is not listed in the Hardware HOWTO. 
 Does anyone have experience with this brand, or should I just grab a 
different card from CompUSA or some such?
