Looking at the specifications it would seem likely that the machine will run Ubuntu well enough, but it is easy enough to test what works out of the box with a Live USB stick.

Is it similar to any of these older models?
Some systems require password to turn off UEFI
Fujitsu lifebook ah512. Secure boot options blocked in bios - UEFI password required
Fujitsu Lifebook A512 [SOLVED] Dualboot pre-installed win 8.1 and Ubuntu 14.04.1

If you have DOS, is system actually UEFI or BIOS based.
Most new hardware is now UEFI.
But if DOS then partitions would be MBR(msdos) which is usually BIOS.
