To begin with you have to disable Secure Boot in the Bios, this can be a tricky. After that everything worked out of the box, even the touchscreen and in the Live session (Ubuntu 13.04) – alfC Jul 2 '13 at 5:49

That I will not get a ton of errors or Ubuntu will run slow?

How do we find out?

Well simple:

download your version of Ubuntu (12.04.2 = what I advise, or 12.10) and make a bootable DVD or USB-stick (this you can do with Unetbootin on both Windows or Ubuntu) Set your Bios to boot the desired medium; DVD or stick. And follow the on-screen procedures.

You can test Ubuntu by selecting 'try Ubuntu' (this option will let you test-run Ubuntu and NOT install it) ; check if all your hardware is supported (e.g. Wifi-card/ CD-bay / etc) If so all went well, you can be pretty shure that installing and using this operating system will go fine.

Things to mind: your graphic card is maybe a pain; download and use, if nessecary, additional drivers.
