Since you said Acer may have a few problems, are there any brands/machines that you would reccomend? I'd get an Inspiron, but I am limited to $700 or less and found at Best Buy. I'll test dual booting Linux-Linux when I get my laptop. How do you create a recovery USB? How big does it...
The reason I'm looking at Pop is because it comes with gaming drivers.
If mint would be easier for jumping into gaming, then I could use that. I also plan on simulation chemistry and the like.
Is the nitro that much of a world of hurt?
Both of those problems seem to be around things other than compatibility (linpus pre-installed).
I'm checking for compatibility with the one with windows pre-installed.
Is there any major difference between Ubuntu and Pop!_OS?
I have a bunch of questions I can't find anywhere, so I'm gonna ask them here.
1. can a machine be incompatible with linux?
2. how can I check the compatibility if the site only has windows and chromebook listed?
3. if a trackpad driver is windows based, will I be able to use it on Linux?
