With fast processors, gobs of RAM, 3D graphics, and large screens (16 inches or higher), these powerhouses make ideal replacements for desktop PCs
It's a stretch to call any computer weighing 10 or 12 pounds a "laptop," but these bulky beasts do combine portability and high performance -- if not quite the power and speed of a top-end desktop machine. Battery life (short) and price (high) can also be an issue. But if you want a system that goes places, and you don't want to feel underpowered when you get there, these desktop replacement powerhouses fit the bill. A rich diversity of features, and a wide range of prices (from $1,200 to $4,000 and more), offer plenty of options.
