This is the closest hardware match I could find:

Drivers in FreeBSD are generally described in terms of the specific
components (motherboard chipset, NIC, SATA controller, etc. etc.) rather
than in terms of a specific whole machine produced by a manufacturer.

Laptops are particularly tricky in this regard, and if no-one else has
reported on your particular model, generally the best procedure is to
try booting the device using a USB or CD-Rom image, and see what does
and doesn't work.
