Beyond Divinity ran perfectly in PlayOnLinux. I'm pretty sure it will run fine on any laptop or netbook because of its generation. I was able to play at 1680x1050 full screen and didn't have any performance issues. Mouse and keyboard worked great, but I noticed the mouse doesn't move smoothly across the screen as expected. So sometimes you will miss an item on the ground.
