I have three laptops that running OpenBSD current.

ThinkPad 390E (PII, 256MB RAM, 6GB HDD)
ThinkPad A20p (PIII, 256MB RAM, 12GB HDD)
DeLL Latitude D830 (Core 2 Duo, 2GB RAM, 80GB HDD) this one runs kernel.

Everything works perfectly. If anybody needs dmesg or xorg.conf let me know.
ThinkPad 390E runs 1024x768 (max possible for hardware).
ThinkPad A20p runs 1400x1050 resolution (max possible). DeLL runs 1280x800 (maximal possible by hardware)
The only thing with DeLL is the built in video camera which is not detected by OpenBSD kernel. Not very surprising
as there is no driver for that camera even for windows XP. DeLL ships the laptop with Vista but I got it from my employer
with Winodows XP professional.

The only problem I had was that I had to edit xorg.conf file manually on DeLL Latitude D830 as X -configure could not produce working X server. I think that is more or less expected.
