Even though HP bills its dm1z laptop as an ultraportable, our reviewer thinks it makes a much better netbook. Read "HP Pavilion dm1z: AMD's Fusion Processor Offers a Lot of Bang for the Buck" to learn why HP's marketing flacks ended up costing this great little netbook--um, ultraportable--a star in our review. The configuration that we reviewed lists at $450, but you can get a higher-end model that usually sells for $550 for much less. HP has a fully loaded version of the dm1z on sale--and enter coupon code NB5751 to push the priced down to only $400 (with free shipping).
