Netbooks good for FreeBSD?

So far I have been able to get WiFi working on most netbooks I got, but
honestly, FreeBSD is not the best for laptops. WiFi drivers are often a
bit buggy (connection is dropping because of driver problems) and ACPI
sleep modes never worked on my laptops. WiFi, ACPI sleep modes and
graphic card support are the weakest points of FreeBSD for non-server
usage according to me...
