All purpose desktop replacement

J. Werner
The list author says: "An all purpose desktop replacement. Lower energy consumption, and excellent flexibility. And high power. May require a bit of know-how, but no means difficult. Will keep you current with todays connections like Mp-4's, and expandable modern game consoles. And, it's very mobile.

This list is flexible so you can upgrade to a custom laptop, or use a larger and better refresh rate TV. This is purely meant to spark an idea for those looking for modern power, low energy, and wish to have a portable option.
Good luck."

"Not super slim, but cool and powerful in it's own right. Many features. Want something different? Try the larger N71JQ-A1 with a 17" display, and blu-ray built in. Want to spend less? Look for the MSI GE600. Same size, but less features. I still recommend the N61 over them all."

"Get this for all purpose use. The mouse can be kept in a laptop storage pocket. Reduces the need to remove the wireless dongle when you go portable, and you get a extra mouse that works for everyone. And since they work off the unifying receiver, you only use up one valuble USB port."

"Raises your laptop off the desk, keeps it away from spills, and adds a USB hub for expandability. Also promotes cooling, but isn't needed for the N61JQ Laptop. May substitute with another stand as needed."

"Purely optional. Removes what bottleneck you get with the hard drive. Use the original drive for data via an external enclosure. Also prevents loss of data from drops, and is silent(no moving parts, and no heat generation). Will require some know how before using properly."
