All purpose desktop replacement

A Listmania! list by J. Werner (North)
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."
ASUS N61JQ-X1 16-Inch Laptop (1.6 GHz Intel Core i7-720QM Quad-Core Processor, 4GB DDR3, 320GB HDD, Windows 7 Home Premium) Dark Brown
1.  ASUS N61JQ-X1 16-Inch Laptop (1.6 GHz Intel Core i7-720QM Quad-Core Processor, 4GB DDR3, 320GB HDD, Windows 7 Home Premium) Dark Brown by Asus
The list author says:
  "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."
