There's only a way to understand if your laptop will support AROS: trying it.
As for the classic software, you can run 68K apps under emulation. The way emulation looks and works can be quite different depending on the AROS x86 distribution of choice. Here at Icaros Desktop we tried to make it as seamless and complete as possible, but things can always be improved. Have a look at our 'amibridge' stuff here http://vmwaros.blogspot.com/p/amibridge.html
Please notice Icaros Live! version will provide most of existing AROS software, although some programs might be now outdated.
I managed to install Icaros Desktop 2.3 XMAS Edition on a SiS Pentium IV.. but the Sounblaster Live 5.1 or something makes AROS crash on playing Test Sound in AHI! AC`97 works but has a Sound glitch.. I will go into my Man Cave and test on.. maybe I will burn a AROS One DVD and install it on the 2nd Hard Disk and test Soundblaster Live 5.1 again!
I`ll make a AROS SMP Test run again on Core i5s!
How can I create a USB Stick to test AROS Nightlys on a Dual XEON CPUs PC?
HA! Some more Keyboard and Mouse Chaos here resolved!
