Ubuntu Compatibility on the Lenovo B580 laptop

view story

http://askubuntu.com – I'm planning to buy a new laptop and I would like to use Ubuntu as my OS. I've zoomed in on this Lenovo: Model: B580 Specs: Intel Core i5-3210M,(Dual-Core), 3 MB Cache 4(+4) GB RAM, Intel HM77 Express Chipset, Intel HD 4000 Graphic Card, 1 TB hard-drive. This laptop comes with Windows 8 pre-installed. I'd appreciate it if you let me know your experience if you've installed Ubuntu on such a configuration. Are there any problems?
