    Buying with laptop no OS and installing Linux... headache?

    As the title says I'm thinking of buying an OS-less laptop and installing Linux. I am interested in whether this will likely lead to problems with things like - oh, I don't know - GPU drivers, wireless etc? Or should all that stuff just work, as it would have if the laptop had come with an OS?

    Thanks in advance

    p.s. I've never installed an OS before. Presumably I'll need Linux on a CD first.

    Step 2: douse laptop in gasoline.

    Step 3: toss a burning match onto laptop.

    Step 4: watch the fire clense your laptop.

    Buying with laptop no OS and installing Linux... headache?

    I just buyed a lenovo g510 for my sister and a lenovo y510p for me(both come with freedos), on g510 I put Win 7 SP1 Ultimate Ret 64 b + Linux Mageia 4 64b, on Y510p I put Win 7 SP1 Home Prem OEM 64 b + Linux Mageia 4 64b; from my experience the laptop with no OS, tend to be more user friendly when it is about to work with any OS, my advice look at what you can buy from your money and google that laptop model + linux word, at my those 2 on linux I never had to install any driver, it is already done after first reboot....
