I'm on the lookout for a used MB Pro (early 2011 model) which I will be fitting out with 8Gb of RAM. Will be using it in dual boot with SL (that's why I can't buy a newer model) and Ubuntu, but I would need to know if this particular model (don't know if it'll be 15" or 17" yet) has any issues running Ubuntu (would be installing 12.10).
Any feedback would be appreciated...

No problems installing Ubuntu 12.10 on my early 2011 13 inch MacBook Pro, although I had a hard time installing previous versions. You'll still have to fix wifi with a tutorial I randomly found on Google (last time I installed Ubuntu the wiki hadn't been updated). Good luck with that, from what I understood, next versions of Ubuntu will support WiFi out of the box.
