This is an Enterprise distro and it does not support the latest and
greatest hardware, especially on Laptops. It is possible that this
will not run properly on your laptop. If not, you may want to consider
a bleeding edge distro, like Fedora or Ubuntu, which will probably
support a lot more hardware.Try running a "Live CD", with whatever
distro you contemplate using, to see if it will run on your HW, before
installing.

Here's a page in the CentOS Wiki for reference:
