Look at the T-series.  Google can probably confirm the general answer that
they run unixen well.  The X series I think work, but you might and might
not have better success with them.

I use BSD on a Lenovo T60 with no problems. The USB bio-reader isn't
recognized and sometimes the wpi0 looses it's link (but it looses it
sometimes in Windows too).  Bring the link back up by
  ifconfig wpi0 up scan

I don't know about the other series, but the T and X have got lots of google
hits last time I checked.
