HP also like to lock-down which wifi cards you can use from BIOS - the
machines won't complete POST with a 'bad' wifi card, so that's another

I've never had problems from modern dell laptops with nvidia graphics.
I'm typing this on a Dell Latitude E6410 - Core i5, iwn wifi, em lan,
nvidia graphics, webcam supported by webcamd...
