It must have a graphics card better than Intel 4500MHD. Would prefer it if it were an i3 or i5, but it really doesn't matter.
If you want a highly portable laptop for watching videos I would suggest one of the new nvidia optimus platforms like the Asus UL80. Its a thin and light model with a graphic card that can be turned on and off to save battery life.
