HP 6530b

Intel Core 2 Duo P8400 (So... 2 cores :P)
Intel X4500MHD (Intel G45 Chipset) which is supported by the
intel_extreme driver/accelerant.
Realtek-based Intel HD Codec (also supported, no need for those extra drivers)
Broadcom Ethernet Card (supported)
Intel Wifi 5100 BGN (supported with drivers available on haikuware)

Preety much a perfect laptop for Haiku.
