    You have actually shown the parts of the system that have the least probability of difficulties with a linux OS. The more important bits as far as most Linux OS compatibility is concerned are the graphic card and, if there is one, the wireless adapter card.

    OK, I think that card is fully supported by the ATI/radeon open source driver; it certainly is listed in https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RadeonDriver

    Re: HW Support

    Hi,

    SSDs do have a tendency to get slower over time as they fill with data. Modern SSDs and the Ubuntu kernel support the TRIM command that can help combat this. TRIM support needs to be manually enabled after installing Ubuntu by modifying the mount parameters of the partitions on the SSD to include the discard option. The page here: http://askubuntu.com/questions/18903/how-to-enable-trim describes how to enable TRIM support in Ubuntu.

    Re: HW Support

    Rather than FORCE the installation, you would do better booting from an Ubuntu LiveCD/LiveUSB and selecting the Try Ubuntu mode.

    Once you get to a desktop, you can then see how well Ubuntu detected your hardware and installed all the proper drivers.

    This way, if something did not work, you have a chance to find resolutions to that before you force and install and end up with a nonworking system.

    Will not respond to PM requests for support -- use the forums.
