Reviews for the Dell Inspiron 17R-1316MRB

60% Dell Inspiron 17R-1316MRB Review: A Budget Desktop Replacement
Source: PC World English
Calling the Dell Inspiron 17R-1316MRB a desktop replacement is a little unfair, since it's not really in the league of the performance desktops that dominate the category. The Inspiron 17R is a solid machine if you're looking for a large screen on a budget, but you have to be aware that it won't perform like similarly sized machines, such as the Origin EON17-S, or the Alienware M17x. But if you're looking for a low-cost desktop replacement for a shared living room PC, the Inspiron 17R is definitely worth a look.

DTR mainly are intended for stationary usage on desks, where the weight and the energy need are unimportant.
