I have rarely had a problem getting the default FCPX H264 1080p export to play on laptops or mobile devices unless there is something wrong with them.

However Doug is right -- FCPX does export 1080p/30 at about 20 megabits/sec, which is probably higher than needed. E.g, Youtube recommends 10 megabits/sec for 1080p/30.

A good fall-back option for smaller public projection or training is also export a version at 720p which reduces the data load by about 1/2, and is easier for ancient equipment to handle. For most venues other than large theaters, it is unlikely the audience can see the difference. Everything broadcast by ABC, Fox and ESPN is exclusively 720p.
