Dell XPS 13 ultrabook works fine with RHEL6/CentOS6 out of the box. It 
does have a glossy screen though.

You can get some very good prices on refurbished models through Dell 
Outlet for around the £500 mark as opposed to over £1000 new. You should 
be able to pick up a Core i5, 8GB RAM, SSD and full HD display for 
around £500 but you sometimes have to wait for the exact spec you want 
to become available (and they do get snapped up quickly).
