There is another interesting option: The hardware of your laptop
is powerful enough to run Linux as a hosting system, with FreeBSD
running in a VM. This gives you the advantages of both worlds. :-)

I fully agree - (re)creating the ability to install and run FreeBSD
on this specific hardware is definitely an interesting task. While
I can say that "use a VM" is a solution that will usually work in
all settings, having native support and a successful installation
on hardware that isn't "too abnormal" would be great. There surely
is a way to achieve this.
