I actually asked a similar one to this at one time in history and got roasted for it.
Back in the day you had to be really careful about what hardware you bought when you ran Linux - there were a lot of "Win-products" which didn't actually have their firmware on their chips permanently but had to load it from a Windows only driver. Those days are pretty much gone - Linux has improved to the point that it can load that stuff, the manufacturers have either pulled their heads far enough out of their asses to either stop doing that, or those shitty ones went out of business, and everyone in the industry wants into Apple's pants so they make their chips more Linux friendly by default because they're hoping they get to supply Apple.
Seriously - with the exception of maybe a weird model specific feature - of the kind that's a rarity these days - pretty much anything you buy with Windows on it is going to be a good Linux laptop. I'm sort of a fan of Lenovo hardware, and as long as you take their Chinese spyware injected version of Windows off you're probably fine. I'm also a big fan of Acer - they're cheap and they feel like they're built by Fischer Price, they take abuse and keep going. If you pick 100 random laptops from local retail stores 98 of them will probably be great with Linux, the other two are going to have oddities that just make it not worth it. I can't imagine what those issues would be, but it's probably from a bargain basement one I wouldn't want of a Sony anyways.
