You will probably need to search on the web to find out whether a particular laptop or desktop model can have your distro installed. They recently discovered that due to a bug, a Lenovo desktop won't boot Fedora. It will Windows and RHEL. If you had purchased this model, you would be waiting for a firmware update before being able to install Fedora on it.
