Linux on ASUS Q200E Touch Screen Laptop

Overview

I recently purchased a “low power ultrabook” at a big box retailer for aobut $300. This Asus model is windows 8 touch screen laptop but instead of the i3, it has a 1.5GHz Celeron processor. I was considering dual-booting it with Lubuntu/Sawfish, but after this research I will probably buy the Linux version. Either way, I need to learn a lot more about UEFI Secure Boot.

Dual Boot

Yes, your ASUS Laptop will work with Ubuntu. I think the
touchscreen will work since this video on YouTube shows a ASUS
Vivobook with Ubuntu 12.10 with the touchscreen in action. If
you have a Vivobook or something similar, more than likely it
will work.

You can dual boot if you want. Keep in mind that your ASUS
laptop came with Windows 8, which means it may come with a
security feature called "UEFI Secure Boot" or "Secure Boot" for
short. You will need to disable "Secure Boot" in order to get
the laptop to boot from removable media, like CD's, DVD's and
USB Drives.
Before doing *anything* to your new Asus G75VW notebook, REMEMBER TO
LOG IN TO YOU WINDOWS INSTALL AND CREATE A RECOVERY DISK. You will
NOT be able to run the Recovery software after modifying the
bootloader. (I tried setting up dual-booting, and found this out the
hard way. If anyone could be so kind as to make a recovery disk for
me, I'd appreciate it...
