i see no reason you could not replace the win 8 with ubuntu..
drivers for the TPT2 hardware would be the only holdup..
i would also retain the ability to reciver win8 OR try a dual boot..?

http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-sl ... -p/1577366 seem to imply that might be a bit of a challenge specially because of video drivers.
