Fedora LTS version is RHEL which is expensive, though they could install CentOS
But manly, it is a laptop and not a server they are selling. RedHat has never been interested in selling a desktop solution (just to contradict me, I believe that recently they have a workstation version comming up). Ubuntu is first and foremost concentrating on the Desktop experience. Steam supports Ubuntu, not Fedora. Ubuntu is what is closest to Windows and Mac as for support. It had wifi connection via GUI two years before Fedora got it.
And if you do not like Unity, you can try Gubuntu. It should look familliar to Fedora as it runs Gnome 3.
