may be you should have a look at FreeBSD hardware compatibility lists and on 
http://tuxmobil.org/mobile_bsd.html for first informations.

If you have some "notebooks of choice", you should find out about their 
network, sound etc. chips and find out, if DFly supports them.

I would like to suggest to go into a notebook shop with a DFly CD and boot 
the "candidates" there, if possible.  Check dmesg and try out to load modules 
for sound, network, etc.

I use an Asus V6835VLP notebook. I have a minor issue with ACPI (can 
be "fixed" with debug.acpi.disabled="sysresource" in /boot/loader.conf) and 
problems with in X11 with the built-in ATI Mobility X600.
