Ubuntu on Hybrid Pcs?

I was wondering if it was possible to install regular Ubuntu on hyprid Pcs such as the HP Envy X2 or Acer w510

I am only asking because I want to use it occasionally for some light programming (java) but there is no mention anywhere online as to if there are any issues with Ubuntu.

That aside would it be worth it or would just getting an Acer C7 be a better deal?

thanks for the help.
