It's probably worth checking in with the PC-BSD community, they are much
more desktop/laptop oriented. Also, the PC-BSD install image apparently
has a mode where you can check a system for how well supported it is in
FreeBSD, so if you can go to a physical stop and boot up with a USB
drive you can see if it meets your needs.
