Hi George

I've (just this weekend) got myself the HP Pavilion dv6-3122sa (X86_64).
Granted, two days isn't a great deal of testing but thus far, it's proven to
be a great piece of kit - Bluetooth seems to work fine, as does WiFi and the
ATI card (via non-free drivers which simply requires a choice to use or not
use through a pop-up). Unfortunately, I have no HDMI equipment to be able to
test the port but at this early stage, I'm perfectly happy.
