Ubuntu has a good page where they specify the hardware compatibility :-
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HardwareSupport
and for laptops :-
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LaptopTestingTeam

Also, if you google around a bit - you can also find step by step
instructions to get things working for specific laptops.
Most major distributions have similar pages.

HTH.
