Since this is not 2009 or earlier you are fine with almost any laptop. Back then you had to be cautious because some WiFi cards were not supported at all etc. At least when it came to the more interesting use cases of WiFi, maybe the basic user functionality worked but you couldn't do advanced stuff.
OS doesn't care what CPU or GPU etc. you have. Sure some odd configurations such as multiple NUMA nodes are better supported on some Linux than on some Windows variants because of focus more on servers, but for surfing web and regular parts, it doesn't freakin' matter.
For the web and videos even a phone has the needed functionality and performance nowadays for common users, just the screen size is small.
