Save your money as the Nvidia 3D kit won't work with your laptop. A couple of reasons,

1. According to the specs for it,

Product Specifications HP Pavilion dv6-1130sa Entertainment Notebook PC - HP Customer Care (United States - English)

it has the HD 4530 video card in it, and is about as low end as AMD's mobility graphics comes. As a result it isn't powerful enough by a long shot to run any game supporting 3D kits.

2. Nvidia's 3D Vision only works with Nvidia GPU, and from what I can find won't even install if a Nvidia card isn't present.

AMD does have their own 3D solution,

AMD HD3D Technology

but again not worth it as the GPU in your laptop isn't powerful enough to run it.

You need a 3D 120Hz polarised monitor to use the 3D vision kit anyway.
