Vendor web sites are almost no use; they trumpet their Windows 8 compatibility all over the site, but finding information about Linux compatibility is next to impossible.

The big vendors should list RHEL compatibility, but perhaps more for
servers than workstations.  CentOS should match RHEL in terms of
hardware compatibility and using vendor-supplied drivers.
