I have to say that really there is no definite way of knowing. From experience, and trying different hardware with Ubuntu, I can tell that it will probably work. Check the Ubuntu Certified hardware website to have a better idea.

Thank you, Mitch. At your link I didn't find this exactly hardware so... if I'm not going to use Win8, should I buy it and to hope it's compatible? – ehijon Apr 6 '13 at 13:19

I bought it.
Everything works fine with ubuntu 12.10
