HP Envy Sleekbook 6 | CNET rating: 3.5 stars out of 5 (Very good)

The good: The HP Envy Sleekbook 6 has a great design for a great price, and includes Beats Audio and decent graphics.
The bad: You're trading down to AMD's A-series processors, which are not as fast or power-efficient as comparable Intel parts. Unlike actual ultrabooks, this doesn't have a solid-state hard drive. Some of the construction still feels a bit budget.
The cost: $549.99 to $649.95
The bottom line: The ultrabook-like HP Envy Sleekbook 6 is the sharpest-looking $599 laptop you're likely to find, although you'll pay a performance premium.

Best laptops for under $600

We'll look back on 2012 as the first year when budget laptops really got a fair shake, with many models looking and acting much more like their expensive cousins than ever before.
