My experience with two different HP dv6xxx laptops was not good. They
both "corroded" slowly as I used them. One eventually wouldn't
recognize any internal wireless card I put in it -- I ended up going
with a usb wireless device. This one has run Ubuntu 8.04 and 10.04
The other doesn't recognize the wired interface. I installed Squeeze on
it, and it worked for a while. After a couple weeks it wouldn't boot
without "noapic" and/or "nolapic" -- I can't remember which.
