Best desktop replacement notebooks

Some of the best desktop replacement laptops on the Australian market -- Acer, Dell, HP, Medion, Samsung, Sony, Toshiba

If you're in the market for a notebook that can be used to replace your bulky old desktop PC and monitor setup, look no further. In this roundup we have assembled some of the best desktop replacement models on the Australian market which we think offer the best combination of size, performance and features for all types of users.

Whether you're a student, a gamer or a business user, we're sure you'll find something to tickle your fancy. Dell is heavily featured our round-up, mainly because the company has a great range of big and powerful notebooks at reasonable prices. Medion also makes the list with its Akoya.

The Akoya is not a regularly-available notebook on the Australian market, but Aldi supermarkets generally stock different models for a short period of time multiple times per year. The Akoya in our roundup has a wealth of features, including USB 3.0, yet it costs less than $800.

If you're into something stylish, then you can check out the Sony VAIO E Series notebook we've included, as well as the Toshiba Qosmio F60, which has been around for a long time now but continues to be a great choice as a desktop replacement notebook.

Toshiba Qosmio F60 (PQF65A-00Y002)

Toshiba's Qosmio F60 looks good, feels good to use and it delivers plenty of performance at a good price. It's not for people who demand the best eye candy when playing a game, but instead for gamers who don't mind sacrificing a bit of image quality and resolution for smooth frame rates. At the end of the day, the Toshiba Qosmio F60 is more than a gaming machine: it's a full-blown media centre that you can use to play Blu-ray movies, record TV shows and play music. We like it.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
