Lenovo (Thinkpads) have historically worked quite well with Linux (They
sell some models with OpenSuse). For the details about specific versions
and how to get exotic things like the Stylus working, or if it's known
not to - Thinkwiki is the place.

I believe that XP Tablet is fairly common because the system requirement
of Win 7 just don't fly on the light hardware - and Starter edition
(what the use on netbooks) may lack Touch features.
