I would upgrade to 14.04.1 LTS first as this may have some of the hardware support updates included; After updating I would then check to see if the hardware support updates are still available.

I would suggest looking into system76.com/laptops If you don't want to go that route. I would strongly suggest grabbing the Asus x550la Intel core i7 haswell or a similar model.

I just got my 3rd gen X1 machine. As I'm writing this, Ubuntu 14.10 is running from a USB pen drive.

On top of the link you've already got, you can have a look at the Ubuntu Supported Hardware catalogue. If the laptop's technical specifications only contains hardware that's mentioned on this list, it's obviously compatible with Ubuntu regardless of Ubuntu version.

I have the 1st gen X1 Carbon and have been running Ubuntu on it for two years now. With 14.04 the fingerprint reader works. That was the only piece of hardware that didn't work in 13.10. It's a fantastic machine. Use powertop to find which settings are killing your battery life and you'll be much happier. I can get >5hrs

I could be wrong (never ran a mac myself), but your BIOS/grub setup should have no impact on your available memory. You could always check by running free -h to see your memory allotment. But it seems that if you're not running in a VM then you should have access to your full system capabilities.

I have this device working on linux mint. I downloaded and installed "Cheese" camera via our software manager, and it worked straight off. Prior to that it hadn't even been detected. Kudos to the guy who pointed out that it is really a camera (on a German Mint forum (in English)). Everything Ubuntu works on Mint. I hope vice versa is true

$ lsof /dev/video0 Should tell you which processes are accessing the device, if any.
