to know about it, because I need to buy a laptop for some testing.

I have successfully run basic GNU Radio flowgraphs with full 32 MB/s USB
2.0 connectivity on a Toshiba Satellite A135-S4527 laptop. You can find
them for relatively cheap (around $599 USD) from places like Best Buy
when they’re on sale. They are not the fastest or best, but seem to do
ok. I cleaned off the pre-installed Microsoft Vista and installed
Ubunutu Feisty Fawn (7.04) without any problem. Everything worked
(including the built-in wireless network adapter) under Ubuntu with the
exception of the media card reader, but I didn’t spend too much time
looking for fixes. The ThinkPad T60 would be great, but if you’re
really strapped for money, this Toshiba laptop might suffice.
