Granted, the HP Pavilion dv6-6135dx doesn't measure up to its competition in terms of productivity and multimedia performance.But it offers the best graphics bang for your buck in this price range, and the Blu-ray drive is icing on the cake. If you're looking for an affordable desktop replacement with some graphics chops and can live with mediocre processing power, put the dv6-6135dx at the top of your list. If you require more speed and wireless options such as WiDi, WiMAX, and Bluetooth, stick with the Lenovo IdeaPad V570-1066A9U.

17.3": Meanwhile the 17 inch display size is a more frequently offered standard format for desktop-replacements. The DTR-laptops can't be carried easily, need much energy but on the other side texts can be read easily and high resolutions are no problem. DTR mainly are intended for stationary usage on desks, where the weight and the energy need are unimportant.
