Does anyone know a laptop with a decent Nvidia or AMD graphics card that installs Ubuntu out of the box, or with minimal tweaking? I am going nuts with my new Lenovo E485 with Ryzen + AMD graphics. It needs a nomodeset instruction ( apparently ) and all attempts to add this after quiet splash then control x are failing just get that same black screen. Also it will NOT go into setup with F1 on startup. I have recently purchased so I think I will be able to return.

    You can buy Dell laptops with Ubuntu preinstalled. – WinEunuuchs2Unix May 22 '19 at 12:33
  • And it's F2, not F1. – user880592 May 22 '19 at 16:33
  • thanks. after several hours trying several recommendations and no luck I have returned the laptop. Do not buy a new Lenovo until the factory address this problem. Dell seem to be more supportive, may look at them. – Shane Wiley May 28 '19 at 22:23
