Ask Slashdot: What’s the Best Linux Laptop?

Long-Time Slashdot reader sconeu is finally replacing his 10-year-old Toshiba Satellite laptop, and needs suggestions on the best current laptops for running Linux.

I’m looking to run some flavor of Linux (probably KDE-based UI, but not mandatory) while using a virtual machine to run Windows 7 (for stuff needed for work). For me personally, battery life and weight are more important than raw power. I’m not going to be running games on this.

I’ve been considering an XPS 13 Developer Edition, or something from System76, ZaReason or Emperor Linux. What laptop do you use? Do you have any suggestions? It’s your chance to share useful information, recommendations, and your own experiences with various brands of laptop. So leave your best answers in the comments. What’s the best Linux laptop?
