Hi, I'm interested in purchasing this laptop, but I'm unsure about its compatibility with Ubuntu. Has anyone tried using Ubuntu on a laptop with these specifications?

  • Intel® Core™ i9-13900HX 5.4 GHz
  • 16" WQXGA IPS 240Hz
  • 32GB RAM
  • 1TB SSD
  • NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4060 8GB GDDR6
If anyone has experience with this laptop and Ubuntu, I would appreciate any insights or feedback. Thank you!

Nice laptop!
Here's the spec's if you need it. Or> for anyone who would like to chime in.

Before you purchase that Gaming Laptop you should find out if the Linux x64 driver for that Nvidia GPU works.

Nvidia doesn't always play nice with Linux.

Don't use the run file to install the Nvidia driver, it will stop working when you install a kernel update and you will have to do it all over again. Instead just install the driver from the default Ubuntu repos, the needed 535.x.x driver for the 4000 series is in there. It will be something like this.
sudo apt install nvidia-driver-535
Used APT to find the Nvidia driver.

I tried apt-cache search nvidia-driver-535. The command-line returned nothing.?!
Wonder why?

I did the following on Ubuntu 22.04.
apt-cache search nvidia | grep ^nvidia | grep 535
