Hi,
I am considering the Thinkpad T460 as my next laptop. Could anyone please let me know about the hardware support? Would it be a decent choice to run FreeBSD on?

The T460 is not listed here, any input would be helpful.

Thanks.

FreeBSD 11-CURRENT perfectly works on T430 from September 2015. Not sure how differs its hardware though.
Code:

The T460 was only released a couple months ago. If you bought one, you'd possibly be the first person to even try FreeBSD on it. And I'd be surprised if wifi and integrated graphics worked out of the box.
