Indesing doesn't work on linux!

  1. Ubuntu is the most "basic" linux distro, you'll be able to find guides and help online easily.

  2. second hand thinkpad are often quite good. They work well with linux, and you can get good deals because the industry buys good laptops and toss them away every 4 years. I don't know what other brand works in the same way.

Also I recommend Xubuntu over Ubuntu because xfce is best desktop enviroment!

I'd recommend Elementary OS over Ubuntu and Xubuntu! It's a fork of Ubuntu, so mostly everything applies, but it's such an upgrade, and has been my trusty daily driver for the last 2 years.

It's also FOSS, which is nice

I can recommend Scribus, a free/libre software for working with InDesign files.

(Although, couldn't you get InDesign to work with Wine if you really wanted to?)
