Can I have a new laptop install a Linux distro from a disk?

I am getting a laptop and to ensure it runs well for the longest time possible I'd like to put a Linux distro on it but can I even do that if the laptop doesn't come with an OS installed?

  1. Yes, no problem. It's slightly easier if you have a DVD drive, but you can use a USB stick. Here, for example, is the documentation for Ubuntu: https://help.ubuntu.com/13.10/installation-guide/index.html

    Oh also, can I get Steam/Origin on any Linux OS?
  3. In theory, but you'll probably find it easiest on Ubuntu. (I hate saying that as Ubuntu isn't my favourite distribution, but that's just a personal thing.)
