My laptop died, so did my partners so we brought one laptop however she does not want linux installed on it.

Is it possible to install linux to a usb memory stick and just have it boot from the memory stick when I want to use the laptop? and does anyone know of any issues that may arise with the hardware (So I can be prepared in advance)

If so what version would be capable? The laptop is an Asus F8 Series
