I find that to be more viable with desktops than laptops, since desktops routinely last ten years. With a laptop, there's a risk of buying something four years old and having Linux work wonderfully for a year and a half before the screen fails or the motherboard shorts out. If you're pretty handy with hardware you can fix it, but most people can't and repairs are expensive.
