I just looked at the hardware mentioned on that page, and ubuntu shouldn't have any problems with the basic components. I don't know if the webcam will work, and I can't check because the brand/model is not listed.
Also, you should keep in mind that it is not possible at the moment to watch blu-ray movies on linux, and that laptop comes with a blu-ray drive, which may be a waste of money if you don't intend to burn/read blu-ray data discs.

I also don't know if the fingerprint reader (optional security option) will work, but I wouldn't buy it if I were you because I am not very optimistic.

Except for the blu-ray and maybe webcam support, the laptop should run fine.
The 13 inch screen definitely won't be a problem, it does have a decent resolution after all.

When I want to know if something works with Ubuntu I google on something like this:

Ubuntu [product] compat

and read the results.
