Hey KitAs,

I want my next laptop to be Linux only, but am trying to narrow down what I want beyond that.

In your opinions, would it be better to buy a laptop that comes with Linux pre-installed, or should I not worry about that since wiping out the existing OS and replacing it with Debian?Ubuntu/etc. is not that difficult to do?

(For the record I've done dual-boot Linux/Windows in the past. Repartitioning the drive has always been the only scary part of the whole ordeal for me, because previously I always wanted to keep Windows there as an option. I don't think I need to do this any more based on what I need out of a portable computer.)

I want to play more with editing video and playing games in a Linux environment (Using a mix of WINE and native Linux apps like OpenShot) so I'm thinking of getting a laptop with at least 16GB of ram and a dedicated graphics card, but beyond that I haven't weighed my options between price and power.

This will NOT be my main computer as I have a desktop at home that's quite nice.
