*BSD laptop - Okeg - 20-11-2012

So, i'm looking into getting a laptop.
What gfx cards, what modems etc are recommended for BSD/works good?

EDIT: sorry for making such a short question.
I already know about the list of working laptops.
I just wonder what are the do's and don'ts of hardware for *BSD?

Correct me if I'm wrong but there aren't any official drivers for AMD but there are for nVidia.

Atheros Wifi cards seem to be well supported, rather than, say, Broadcom, but I have Atheros so am unsure of Broadcom other than what I have read.

GFX, uhm. Anything AMD. Procceser, AMD. wifi card, I have a Atheros AR5002G Wireless Network Adapter.
But then again, my setup was always very outdated(besides the wifi card). My whole setup worked damn good on OpenBSD, and I ran AMD like pimps run hoes.
