There are many.  I've had good luck with Lenovos.  I'm writing this from
a friend's T530 and I own an X220, but neither have a 17" screen.

A first step is to search the archives of the mobile, acpi and questions
mailing lists.  There are also some helpful threads on the forums and
http://laptop.bsdgroup.de/.

Once you have a system specd out, verify that the video and wireless
cards are supported.  Searching for something like "FreeBSD Centrino
Advanced-N 6205" should do it.
