This week, we will be pondering over five different types of laptops with the view of producing separate templates that we will be pushing on Asus/Intel's Wepc.com soon.
The laptop designs are Server Laptop, Gaming laptop, Desktop Replacement Laptops, Netbook and Ultra Mobile Laptop. Today, we will have a look at Desktop Replacement laptops.
Desktop replacement (DTR) laptops are ideal for customers who want to have some mobility without compromising. They are ideal for number crunching tasks and their large screen and full size keyboards mean that often DTRs are used as gaming laptops. They are normally quite heavy although the weight of recent models dipped under 5Kg.
