I have a Compaq v4020 US Centrino
Nearly everything worked out of the box with Ubuntu on this machine and
it's perhaps the best notebook I've ever had (and there are five others
in my house at the moment). I did have some issues with the IPW2200
wireless card it came with. THe how to here:
http://nickselby.com/articles/technology/?a=1807 got it working. Since
then other than a minor hardware problem which HP has since fixed the
machine has been brilliant. Great battery life, fast as hell, brilliant
colour on the widescreen monitor, lovely sound, quiet and at under
$1500 a great deal.
