On Linux, for mainstream hardware that has been on the market for some months, there's almost never need to install any drivers.
I'd recommend you run a live system from thumbdrive oder DVD and test everything. Your Ubuntu installation medium should allow this. Connect to your wifi, test ethernet, the usb ports, the touch pad and I guess it should work.
Check out the support for your external hardware like printers or scanners.
