If you're looking for an affordable 15-inch desktop replacement laptop that will handle your basic productivity tasks and play your favorite Blu-ray movies, the Dell Inspiron M501R-1748MRB will get the job done. That said, there are plenty of laptops in this price range that offer better performance, including the HP Pavilion dv6-6013cl (our current Editors' Choice), and the Acer Aspire AS5742-6475.
