For the vast majority of laptops that are not based on the absolute
latest chipsets, CentOS Linux 7 just works.  There are sometimes issues
with the latest Intel Graphics or the latest Intel CPU chipset.  The
latest kernel did get newer hardware drivers.

We also have an experimental kernel here that can be tried if you have a
specific issue as well:


(look at the .repo file for experimental kernel at the bottom of the
page .. it works for i386 and x86_64 CentOS Linux 7 arches)
