I consider it better to check out a Live install ISO first (or as well), especially if you depend on wifi, as some wifi cards don't operate out of the box, and some need firmware that the distro ISO doesn't contain.

It also should give your the opportunity to test for any other nasty surprises due to uncooperative hardware (sound, card readers etc).

VM's are trendy an all, but if you intend to install, better to test on bare metal.
