Though it costs a bit more than competing models, it's hard to argue against the HP Pavilion dv6-6163cl. Other than the clacky mouse buttons, we have no quibbles about the design, which is both tough and sleek thanks to its use of aluminum. Features we would have liked to see included are Bluetooth and dedicated graphics, though it's rare to find an $800 laptop with dedicated graphics. As configured, it delivers very competitive application performance for the price.
