one site i would suggest is:;SQLIMIT=20

it'll allow you to search dmesg log files from various OS/Hardware
combo's.  I know i've put a couple thinkpad entries in there.
hopefully it'll give you a good idea of the hardware support of
various laptops out there.  putting "laptop" as a search string seems
to pull up a fair amount of hit's.
