Many people seems to inclined to suggest Intel chipsets are easier to install on laptops. I tend to agree to that opinion as common problem are related to graphic and wireless drivers. Intel drivers usually supported out-of-the-box. I think I would suggest if it is Intel chipset laptop, you go for it.
