Another heavyweight contender, the Medion Akoya P8613 MD97525 also boasts a whopping 18.4in screen. At 3.77kg it's not going to be something you'll chuck in your bag to stop you getting bored on the train to work, but that large screen and 2.1-channel speaker system pack a considerable multimedia punch.

Comment

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5165: Renamed Mobility Radeon HD 4650 with slightly higher clock speed. Therefore, no DirectX 11 support and only slightly faster than a HD 4650.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

430M:

The Core i5-430M is a middle class dual core CPU that features only 3 MB L3 Cache (compared to the I7-640M) and clocks between 2.26-2.53 GHz (Turbo Mode). Furthermore, VT-d, trusted Execution and AES features are missing in the 430M. Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (Intel HD Graphics with 500-733 MHz) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.

18.4": 18 inch display size is a rare and very big size for desktop-replacement laptops. Laptops with 18 inch displays did not exist before 2008. 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.

3.8 kg: This laptop is heavy below average, compared with the average of notebooks. Therefore especially desktop replacements fit in this class of weight.
