thinking of switching from Win8 to Ubuntu 12.1. Could you go with the "Run from USB stick" to verify compatibility with hardware or will that run in some kind of virtual environment?

The new Dell Inspiron m102z looks great with the new amd fusion technology.
I open this post for the people who is planning to install ubuntu on it to check the hardware compatibility, like performance, suspend/hibernate, wifi, hdmi port, noise level, battery life, etc
Any feedback will be greatly appreciated.
I'm trying to figure out how the compatibility for the MacBook Pro 5.5 is now, with the new release of Ubuntu 12.10. I have tried several times with the previous 12.?? releases, and it always seemed to run hotter than normal and have a couple kinks with drivers and what not. So out of fear of burning out my laptop, I've had to force myself to wait with hopes of a brighter future, haha.
today at startup my Tb (not precisely sure what version it was) asked if it should check compatibility of the lightning calendar addon. That is to say it displayed in a list windows the only item: lightning and said it was not compatible. Choices were "check" or "don't" check compatibility. I clicked on check and after nothing happened for several minutes on "cancel".
In a recent public discussion, Linus Torvalds insisted that backward compatibility is of critical importance in kernel development.
Most software developers have struggled with the issue of backward compatibility.
