the hp dv6700t has hdmi if you add discrete graphics. Right now the discrete graphics (nVidia 8400M GS) is 50% of on configurable models.
The base model is $649 (right now there's $100 off- it would normally be $749). So you could easily add the discrete graphics and still have a little left over for other upgrades.
This is the configuration I just ordered:- HP Pavilion dv6700t Entertainment CTO NB

At just a little over 6 lbs this qualifies as a portable. My configuration came in below $900 before taxes. AFAIK you are just always going to pay more for a thin and light.
