Not sure where I got the idea it was a laptop, unless it was in one of the links or something. Anyway, most hardware is fairly Linux-friendly. Check with whichever distro you want to use and see if there are reported issues like the one you found about Ubuntu and certain hard drives.
If you like DSL and intend to run it, you don't need a new computer. Find an old one someone has abandoned or build a system from scavenged parts. If you want something new for DSL, consider the Damn Small Machine.
