Well, I haven't checked it out, but here is the HP thread stating the
purpose for the whitelist:

It is unfortunate, but I think HP makes quality products and I don't
see it as a good enough reason not to do business with them,
especially if it is the FCC requirement.
I wouldn't say you could get a *nice* Dell for little money, but a
decent one.  If you want a good CPU, modern video card, and a decent
amount of RAM, you are going to have to pay a little more.  You can't
buy a 64-bit machine from them, though.  I won't buy a Dell because
they only sell Intel CPUs.  I think AMD makes a much better CPU for
the price.  And when you can get a 64-bit laptop for easily under
$1500, it just doesn't make sense to buy 32-bit.
