FreeBSD's weakest point is the support for notebooks.

I could get it running at least but it did not make real sense to keep 
it as the power management was to limited. I kept this machine as my 
only Windows machine to do support Windows programs.

It is very often the case that notebook vendors do not give the support 
needed to adopt the drivers to make FreeBSD a success on those machines.
