I have successfully instantiated a Dell Latitude D630 with
FreeBSD 10. Its wireless adapter is supported. All other
components (such as regular network, audio and docking station)
also work as expected. However, that is a quite "outdated"
machine, but this definitely does _not_ imply that it's
useless. I made it run Gnome which (in retrospect) was a
stupid decision. ;-)

Other older devices, such as IBM Thinkpad (now Lenovo) models
T60p, R61i and R500 also work good with FreeBSD.
