Not if they require GEM/KMS like all the modern variants do; they're not  
supported in FreeBSD yet. I have a laptop (Google CR48) that's running the  
very experimental GEM/KMS code because otherwise it's stuck with a  
horrible resolution. Even with a custom kernel and custom ports/X11  
patches it still has quirks like not being able to get your vty back after  
you start X.
