Well, assuming you have just an ordinary laptop, then yes, any Linux OS should run just fine. If you have something smaller, like a netbook, or an ultraportable, you may want to choose a lighter OS like Lubuntu. I would also suggest this if your laptop is older, and doesn't run all that well.

P.S.: I can be maybe a bit more specific if you post your hardware, or model#

There are many different distributions of Linux available, some specifically designed for limited hardware. Since I do not know what your platform consists of, the best starting point would be at http://distrowatch.com/ . Additionally, you would want to Google "your laptop model" & Linux to find out what others have been able to accomplish.

Good luck & have fun!!

In almost all cases, linux will work just as well on a laptop as it would on a desktop with similar hardware. In fact, I am using a laptop and Archlinux right now.

Be warned that sometimes wireless drivers and power options take some finagling.
