For example, look at If you're going to buy a new laptop to run linux on, why not pick one that has working suspend and resume? Most brand-name ones seem to work fine.

A really nice feature enabled on the laptop by LC is the speed stepping feature, that allows the CPU to run from 600 Mhz to 1.80 GHz depending on the load each time. .

Note that this is enabled on Ubuntu by default, when it detects the hardware supports it.

Rhythmbox was also saying that it doesn't support mp3.

This is in the Ubuntu FAQ,

There is no 3D support, as it is not compatible with suspend/resume, there are cases of lockups if both are enabled (it's a trade off, a decision had to be made).

As Matthew said, this is false for at least this chipset.
