  System76 (Laptop or Netbook)
  Mint (older version)
  Works perfectly
What works:

System76 only offers Ubuntu preinstalled so all of their hardware is extensively tested to ensure there are no issues. As a result, everything works perfectly.

What doesn't work:

Over 50 installs of over 30 distros and never a problem.

Additional notes:

This model is now discontinued and the entire line is a bit on the pricey side, but for a Linux system it's extremely hard to beat.
