One come at it from a different direction way to answer this would be to
look at what hardware Dell, System76, and other vendors will sell you with
Linux preinstalled- if they are willing to support it, presumably Linux
support is pretty good (admittedly my circa 2010 System76 laptop does have
a System76 provided driver for its video).
