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.
11 / 11
The Dell Inspiron M5010 is based on AMD's triple-core Phenom II N850 CPU and it's one of the great all-round 15.6in laptops on the Australian market. You can use it for office work, multimedia tasks and even gaming (although not for graphics-intensive first-person shooters). It's a good unit for students looking for something to take back to school, yet even small business users should find it appealing for everyday work. We just wish it wasn't so glossy and reflective.
