The amd64-generic flavour works on all so far available amd64 compatible
systems, it is intended for the installer only.
The amd64-k8 kernel is for all athlon64 and single opteron systems,
while the amd-k8-smp kernel is for, as the name says, smp opterons.
So the amd64-k8 kernel is the right one for your laptop.
The amd64-xeon kernel is for all em64t based intel systems, the already
available xeonDP "nocona" and the just paperlaunched new p4 processor.
