Once you settle on a few potential models, Google the model of the machine and add the word Linux and alternately Ubuntu to your search. You should find info pretty quickly to find out if it is supported in the Linux kernel.

I can't really say more. I personally dislike touchscreens so don't own one to test anything on. :geek:

You should also be cautious about buying a machine for Windows 8 that might have UEFI bios.
