Check for those you can turn off UEFI in the bios.

Buy the smallest hard disk you can find, then order the fastest and largest you
will need, and
perhaps a second mounting tray from the computer manufacturer.

Keep the original disk. (Whether you ever boot from it or not is your
decision). If the machine
fails in warranty, you can return the original disk to the computer and avoid a
lot of warranty
arguments. Then at end of warranty buy a cheap external enclosure for that
disk and nuke it to
use as a backup or what ever.

Install your linux on the bigger disk, and enjoy.

Clearly an externally accessible disk drive bay is a plus with this scheme.

If you don't HAVE to have this year's chipset/processor, your chances for
incompatibility are reduced.

After all is said and done, more is said than done.
