Installing Ubuntu 14.04 on new laptops.

Robert Heller
Has anyone had any experience installing Ubuntu 14.04 on either of these two
laptop models:

Lenovo,T420, I5 2520M, 2.5 GHZ, DDR3, 8GB,
320GB, 14.0W, GB NIC, AGN, DVD/RW, Webcam


HP,Elitebook 8460p, I5 2520M, 2.5 GHZ, DDR3,
8GB, 250GB, 14.0W, GB NIC, AGN, DVD/RW,
Bluetooth & FP Reader

Our local library is looking to buy new laptops and we need to be sure we can
install Ubuntu 14.04 on them.  The rest of the library's computers all run
Ubuntu 14.04 as their desktop Operating System (all but one are set up as
"thin" clients, booting with DRBL).

Hi Robert

Not on Thinkpad T420, but I've got Ubuntu 14.04 working on a T410 (the
preceding model to the T420) without a problem.
