Two companies I have delt with and which I would recommend to provide Linux
R Cubed Technologies
and Emperor Linux
Each of these companies will sell a laptop with Linux only on it or dual boot
with windows, your option. Each of these companies will ensure that all the
relevant capabilities of the laptop will work out of the box.
R Cubed is selling refurbished laptops at reduced prices but I believe that
all or most of the refurbished laptops come with windows.
My laptop comes from Emperor and is an IBM Thinkpad (now known as Lenovo). I
use open SUSE and have no problems with it. I don't know about an ID card
scanner because I do not have one.
