Is CentOS good for a desktop machine?

I have been using Fedora but the whole GNOME 3 debacle has me
scrambling for something else. I have a few "minimal" CentOS servers
but does anyone here use CentOS on their laptop?

Does wireless and suspend work ok?

Are there packages for the usual desktop stuff like libreoffice,
sylpheed and so on?

Machine is Toshiba Portege R935. It's about a year old so it's properly "aged".
