As far as I know, their software is free (as in beer and in freedom) and
will run on low-end hardware. As long as there are linux drivers
available for the built-in wireless, I'll bet it works out-of-box. From
what I can see on their site, it looks like it's 64bit only. Still,
worth a try if it might fit the bill.
