I had thought that the laptop would be kind of a worst case scenario. I've heard of past versions of Linux having trouble with the unusual hardware that sometimes appears on laptops.

Graphics, audio, the touchpad, even the wireless networking hardware built into the laptop were all detected and worked perfectly. I typed in the WEP key for my network (using a simple to find dialog for setting up networking) so the laptop could get onto the network and it all worked perfectly and fast. It also had no problems browsing the file server I use (a Buffalo Teraserver) or any of the Windows machines on my network either.
