Is there any way to tell if a laptop will be compatible with Fedora/Linux?

I’m currently looking at an ASUS ExpertBook B9450CEA but I’m unsure of how compatible it will be with Fedora and Linux in general. I searched through the Ubuntu and RedHat certified hardware lists but neither list the laptop.

I was able to find an Arch Wiki article on it, but being totally new to Linux I am not entirely sure if it is compatible or incompatible with Linux. More specifically, I’m not sure what issues there are with the audio, suspend mode, and function keys. If anyone is able to explain what issues I might run into according to this article, I’d really appreciate it.

Otherwise, any advice on determining if a laptop is compatible with Linux would be much appreciated.

There’s no real list that I’m aware of, because of the the wide variety of hardware configurations the FOSS community hopes to support. The best way of checking is downloading the live image of the distro you want to use and see how well that works on your hardware. Of course, that doesn’t work if you don’t have the hardware yet :frowning:

You can try the Linux hardware database here perhaps. I think this is the one you’re looking at?
