So I'm thinking of buying the Lenovo Ideapad s530 13IWL. It's this model:https://www.notebookcheck.net/Lenovo-IdeaPad-S530-i5-8265U-UHD620-Subnotebook-Review.413835.0.html But the specs on the one I'm interested in is i7 16gb ram and a mx150 graphics card. My only concern is if it will run Linux? I've read about issues about Lenovos compatibilty with Linux. And I can't seem to find an answer. I prefer Ubuntu or Pop OS.

I have the Ideapad 530S-14ARR (AMD Ryzen 5) since 3 months, running Linux Mint 19.1 (Ubuntu based). In the beginning my issues were related to touchpad and wifi, but those could easily be fixed. Wonderful machine and perfect for my needs!
