Running Linux on the Lenovo ThinkPad T440p laptop should be no problem. I have Slackware64-14.1 on my Lenovo ThinkPad T440p, and basically everything works.

The Lenovo ThinkPad T440p is my constant companion. It's my work machine, and used for pretty much anything else too. I don't like the “clickpad” with no hardware buttons, but a tweak found on the Linux-Thinkpad mailing list (posted by Ted T'so in February 2014) made it usable (albeit still not ideal.) Note that's just a hardware design issue, not anything to do with running Linux or not.
Lenovo ThinkPad T440p works fine with Linux here. I'm a professional sysadmin, but I suspect anyone would do well enough with a recent enough distro. My Slackware64-14.1 shipped with a 3.10 kernel, and the iwlwifi.ko 802.11 driver did not work out of the box. I compiled a custom kernel to make it work.
