As far as I've seen, HP seems to vary as much as any other
manufacturer when it comes to Linux support on notebooks, I suggest
taking a look at specific chipsets on your system that you're having
trouble with and chase those down. As a data point I have the HP
EliteBook Folio 9470m Ultrabook and everything worked perfectly out of
the box with Xubuntu 12.10.

(Disclaimer: I work for HP but have nothing to do with their hardware
division, so I'm just another user as far as this is concerned and my
comments are my own :))
