I have an a215 running hardy and I'm very happy with it.

you can check out linuxonlaptops: http://www.linux-laptop.net/ I didn't see your model reviewed but you can try the forums maybe.

try the livecd and see what happens. you can dual install with windows to be "safe" (using the term very loosely) :)

as far as compatibility goes, you should check things specifically, like your wireless card, video card etc. I'm afraid I cant help much further on this subject, however my (little) experience with linux/ubuntu has taught me that most anything can be solved with a little patience.
