If you choose any laptop with Intel Core i5 or above, 8 GB RAM or more, and a decent SSD (256GB+), you cannot go wrong.
All the other things that you can buy in a laptop is subject to personal preference therefore largely biased.
You will pay extra money for: smaller display (than 15"), high resolution display, small weight, large battery capacity.
I don't like Macs (I have worked with them), I would prefer an Ultrabook, but currently I'm working with a Lenovo X230 (16GB RAM, 256GB SSD, Core i5) with a large external monitor and it works fine. Ubuntu is supported on this laptop officially by Canonical, although I prefer the Xubuntu variant.
This setup doesn't have problem running 2-3 virtual machines (VirtualBox).
