    I can tell you this.. if you install the 14.04 LTS, you will need a hardwired connection to download wifi drivers.. so when you install the OS you wont be able to connect wifi wirelessly without the drivers..you will have to manually download them and install through prompt.. make sure you watch a tutorial on youtube about how to install drivers for wifi.. I had ubuntu on my laptop for approximately 10min till I reinstalled windows 10.. I use hotspot from my cellphone provider so I couldn't install the drivers.. I also tried downloading them to a flash drive and adding them through prompt to no avail..

    I guess it does support AMD drivers. i have Helios 300 and i installed Ubuntu 18.04 in it. by default it had some open source drivers i guess but you can install the drivers for the dedicated GPU from
    Software & Updates -> Additional Drivers ,
     select the latest recommended drivers and apply.

    unfortunately, no additional driver is available for now.
