I am going to buy a new laptop and I need it with nvidia graphics card .. I searched and I found lenovo ideapad series z/y/u 510 have my suitable hardware specs but I cannot find any resources about supporting any of them to Ubuntu and the official site of Lenovo doesn't have any support for lenovo.

My question is : Does any of those three laptops (y510, z510, u510) support Ubunut ? if no . what laptop with Gforce gpu do you recommend to me ? if yes where to find a guide to install it along side windows?

Thanks in advance

Check it's the site for lenovo (thinkpads originally) and Linux. – terdon Apr 22 '14 at 14:16
actually it's only about thinkpads which I cannot afford :D .. I am asking about ideapads specifically – Sheshtawy Apr 22 '14 at 14:45
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about hardware recommendations – Richard Apr 22 '14 at 15:49

Welcome to AU! The Lenovo support site does have over 100 documents mentioning Linux here. A number of Ideapads show up on the first page.
