the problem is .. what means "supported" supported could mean:

- is detected and turned off (most fingerprint/lte modems)

- is detected and left alone (fan controll, legacy keyboard/mouse, 
mouspad, backlight of keyboard)

- is detected and support basic functions (graphics in vesa mode, usb, 

- is detected and support normal functions (graphics with driver, cpu 
wih power throtteling)

- is detected and support more than normal functions (ap mode in WIFI, 
full fan control, sensors, ... )

and each level maybe needs like:

- has a working driver in the kernel

- needs firmware from vendor or alternativ

in linux the most problems arise with graphics chips not from intel/amd. 
because without suppend and upgrades are difficult.
