Then you should be fine. The drivers are available for that model.
And as Arbitrageur said, you can run 11.04 from a usb. There are actually several different ways to run it if you just want to try it out before
actually switching. And it still is very small compared to a Windows installation.

Please don't imply that I don't know how to build my own computer. I've been doing it for well over a decade. The first computer that I learned to
code on was an Apple IIe. I know computers and I know how to select the proper components for one.
Vista didn't work for everyone. There was a reason that Microsoft put out Windows 7 so soon after the release of Vista. It wasn't the worst OS
they've ever put out, but it certainly was not as stable as you are making it out to be.
You are sorely misinformed on how well the Linux operating systems work. It is the most stable OS you can get. Just because you couldn't handle it
doesn't mean you need to go around spreading lies about it. The updates are frequent and more reliable because it is open source. Please,
don't go spouting off false information about Linux until you have learned a little bit more about it.
