I know a friend who got the windows version and had a lot of trouble getting Linux on it. I think like the other poster said there is a difference in the hardware. Seems the screen is different.

I looked at them. Not very good value for money. Better to get a macbook or a lenovo/asus and install ubuntu on it.

I agree. I now have NixOS on an older (2011) MacBook, which seems to work flawlessly. There's an issue with iSight built-in camera, and sound, but I didn't spend time trying to figure it out. Installation was a breeze and everything works out of the box.
