Avahi is a red herring - ignore it.
Network manager doesn't store it's settings in /etc, but if there are
entries in /etc/network/interfaces then those conflict with network
manager and can cause problems.
Make sure the only eth0 entry in that file is
# The primary network interface
and configure thru network manager.
Alternatively, remove network manager and install wicd (from
wicd.sourceforge.com) and try that. Since it's a laptop I'm assuming
you'd prefer that to munging the /etc/networking/interfaces file
whenever you move it around.
