Linux install over windows 10 on HP laptop

It has been 11 years since I fooled around with this stuff thus I think I might be a newbie. So, are there any inherent problems with installing a new version of Fedora on a New 'HP Silver Fusion laptop' already with windows 10 installed? "Back in the day" I installed many versions of Red Hat on various types of Windows computers with no problems. Linux just installed right over the windows OS. [with Intel processors] I am not up to date on any little traps that might be hiding in the Microsoft software since then, nor have I ever worked with a software change on a laptop. If all is well I would be grateful also, for any suggestion as to what newer version of Fedora would be best. (There seem to be a number of versions in the 20's at this time, and since I am presently using Fedora 14 on an old huge 'Darth Vader' desktop, I am a bit confused). Thank you all, jaredR
