I have an older Skylake-based Acer, and it certainly works very well in Debian and MX Linux, though any of the recent Intel chipsets required non-free firmware. But that's no guarantee that a newer Acer will work out of the box.

There's also a subreddit where you can put up your original question, or look at some of the others that ask the same, such as this one: ... rkstation/
The MX Linux repositories: Backports galore! If we don't have something, just ask and we'll try--we like challenges. New packages: llvm-8 toolchain, Rustc 1.36, wine-staging 4.16, Telegram-desktop 1.8.8, Pale Moon 28.7.1, Waterfox 56.2.14

Today I have got for a good price Lenovo ThinkPad P51 i7-7820HQ 16Gb SSD 512Gb nV Quadro M2200M 4Gb 15.6 UHD IPS BT Cam 5940мАч Win10Pro.
So now, as a first test, I am trying to figure out how to run Debian from bootable usb, and see how it goes.
