The point being made in the FAQ here is that every last hardware feature of every laptop may not be supported. Installing OpenBSD on a laptop is a good experience.

Historically, Thinkpads, as developed by IBM, were solid, well built laptops. Many developers, including a number of official OpenBSD developers, wrote code while using Thinkpads. Because of this, Thinkpads are a safe hardware bet for OpenBSD. Personally, I run OpenBSD on a T43 with very few issues. It has been a good marriage.
