Sony Vaio T ultrabook?

I finally decided to buy an ultrabook as Im in travel frequently...
Does anybody have experience with Linux on Sony Vaio ultrabooks?

Im thinking of one:
SVT 1312V1ES
Proc: i5 - 3317U 1,7G (2,6G Max)
Graphics: INTEL HD 4000
128 GB SSD
Wi-fi: Qualcom Atheros AR 9485WB-EG

I want to install Linux (pref. Ubuntu, Fuduntu or SolusOs) parallel to its original Win 8.
I have no experience with SSD discs nor with Sony computers in general. Just need to be sure if it will work fine.
I will appreciate any comments!
Thank you very much!

I just realised the main issue might be with UEFI - secure boot. I have no experience with this kind of computers at all...
