I have the perfect Haiku laptop which I run Haiku on...

* Fully supported Video card (ATI Radeon) (The radeon driver even has an
extended control panel)
  Example of ATI x300 panel:

* Fully supported Wireless/Bluetooth (Intel 22xx)
* Fully supported Audio
* Fully supported Gigabit Ethernet
* Only one core, but it's 2.18Ghz w/ht

HP NC6230, a nice looking small business-style laptop.

Good luck!
