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.
