I have a Dell D820 (similar to the M65 I think).  I have the nvidia 
graphics chip, and am running it just fine at 1920x1200, using either 
the nvidia binary driver, or the xorg nv driver.

Bluetooth works perfectly.

Wireless, not sure - I swapped mine out for an Atheros (you can buy them 
  online, email me if you need some pointers).
