I'm actually using CentOS on 2 laptops, and I have really few issues:
on the newer one (a Lenovo) the only thing that doesn't work is sound (I know 
the newer alsa drivers would work, but I'm too lazy to install them: I'll wait 
for the updates) but it isn't a big deal: I'm using it for work, and I don't 
need sound
My old crappy asus instead is just for watching movies attached to an external 
flat lcd tv and it's doing his job wonderfully (even if it has some issue with 
the integrated monitor)
So maybe I'm nuts, but I'm happy with not having to reinstall everything every 
6/12 months.
