I just bought a Toshiba Satellite P745-S4217 to replace my Dell 1420 that had the NVIDIA defect. I would like to replace winblows 7 with ubuntu soon but before I do I want to see if there are any issue with the compatibility of ubuntu and this Toshiba that need to be addressed before I dive in so that it will be a faster and easier transition.

I don't see anything in the specs that would indicate any issues. I'd create a cd or usb with a live cd of ubuntu and boot to it to test that you don't have any video issues or network issues. Again I don't think you will. Also, look at this link for installing dual boot. http://members.iinet.net.au/~herman546/index.html
