I have had really good luck installing Ubuntu on many different random desktops and laptops, and I have never had a problem. But this would be the first windows 8 machine that I have purchased, and I have heard that windows 8 makes it harder to install ubuntu next to it, it doesn't want to play nice or something. I also need to make sure that the machine can boot from a USB stick so I can even install ubuntu. Has anyone had any experiance with this particular laptop? or other windows 8 things to look out for?
I think this is an ok link to check it out.. http://www.toshiba.com/us/computers/laptops/satellite/C50/C55-A5281
Basically I am hoping someone who knows a bit more about it than I, can verify that I will be able to install ubuntu on it... I cannot abide windows. lol.
