I am considering purchasing a Dell XPS 15 (http://www.dell.com/us/p/xps-15-l521x/pd?oc=dncwx16bw7&model_id=xps-15-l521x)
Intel® Core™ i7-3632QM processor NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 640M with 2GB GDDR5 VRAM 750GB 7200 rpm SATA Hard Drive + 32GB mSATA Solid State Drive
I plan on dual booting windows and ubuntu. I'd like to keep windows around to play some games on the laptop, but I plan on primarily using Ubuntu as my workstation.
What is the easiest way to setup a dual boot for this setup? Do I have to worry about UEFI e.g. (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UEFI)? Which Ubuntu should I install? What other problems should I look out for?
Links to guides would be appreciated!
edit: looks like the 32gb mSATA SDD is used as a cache device for the most frequently accessed data for faster access using the Intel Smart Response Technology. Is Ubuntu able to take advantage of this system?
