Better you choose a ATI Graphics card, please correct me, but i think they do not deliver any macs with nvidia graphics now. I think you go well with ATI, it has the best compatiblity with hackintosh

I would prefer Dell or Sony laptop, but my first selection is Dell laptop. Also, the main concern here is how to choose laptop which is compatible with hackintosh having a graphics card, so it would be better to choose ATI for compatibility. But you may try a laptop that has NVIDIA graphics so that you can testify it on your own.

In the end, the final choice is still on your hand.
