With a price of around $500, the HP Pavilion dm1-3020us could be considered a premium netbook or a budget ultraportable. It much more closesly resembles an ultraportable because the new AMD Fusion processor and graphics ive it capabilities unheard of in a netbook. It falls a bit short of what many ultraportables can achieve but it does a good job at a lower price.

These 10- and 11-inch (and originally 7- and 9-inch) laptops came out of nowhere to capture the attention of a public tired of paying for too much computing power. The first laptop to offer AMD's power-efficient Fusion platform delivers on much of its promise, combining great battery life, decent performance, and basic graphics for less than $500.

Now that the HP Pavilion dm1 has arrived, the budget notebook space has become a lot more competitive. With AMD's new Fusion processor, HP has created a laptop that, for $479, provides a better balance of performance and endurance than the Nvidia Ion-powered Asus Eee PC 1215N. It also gives you more graphics oomph than Intel ULV notebooks and earlier AMD budget ultraportables. While you'll squeeze out a few more frames in some games on Ion, the more powerful dual-core AMD processor in the dm1 lets you accomplish more than an Atom chip ever could. Not only that, but you get 6.5 hours of battery life in a very stylish package.
