I'm not sure if this will help you, but it might point you in the right direction. Look at this link:

www.ubuntu.com/.../desktop

Unfortuanally I couldn't find your model there, but it doesn't mean it won't work ok at 100%. You may try asking around in askubuntu.com or ubuntuforums.org if the model you want to buy isn't listed here.

I hope you have luck with your purchase.
