Bottom Line: For less than $500, you get a laptop stacked with Dolby Audio and a graphics processor that's going to make watching anything you need to about as good as whatever you're going to watch on your TV (albeit, in a much, much smaller size). It's the cheaper version of the HP Envy, and by our count, just as good if not better a bargain if you want to keep it cheap.
