I've had a hard time getting Ubuntu installed on my Acer laptop.

This guy recommended setting acpi=off to workaround some of the boot issues.

If this solution is successful in getting Ubuntu to boot up, could it have an impact on the performance/functionality of the OS?

Setting ACPI off means that Ubuntu will not attempt to use ACPI features like Power Saving, Standby, Hibernate amongst others.
