Tablets Compatible with Mint 19

Post by NevyNeverKnowsBest »

I am in the market for a tab that can run Linux Mint 19 (or any Linux, I suppose). The last time I tried this, I ran into a major problem. At the time, the tab I tried this on had a 32 bit UEFI firmware (even though the CPU was 64 bit) and I couldn't install Linux Mint or Ubuntu in the UEFI. This was about 3 years ago, perhaps even longer than that now.

Are there currently any confirmed working tabs running Ubuntu, Mint, or Linux in general? Has anyone else here tried this and succeeded?
Linux Mint 19.1 Cinnamon x64
