Many people run FreeBSD on laptops.

This is the best link to get started:
http://gerda.univie.ac.at/freebsd-laptops/

I run 5.2.1-RELEASE on an IBM T30. The only outstanding issues for me 
are: acpi (I just use apm) and the integrated Cisco Aironet Wireless (it 
worked with FreeBSD 4.9/10, but broke with 5.2.1 -- I went back to using 
my Orinoco PCMCIA wireless card, which works like a champ.)

Good luck!
