Hardware, Embedded Systems San Jose-based LinuxCertified.com sent us one of their best-selling laptops, the LC2430. We've used it for more than a month with four different distributions and here's what we think about it.

Desktop replacement
by Dark_Knight on Fri 5th Nov 2004 19:00 UTC

Some seem to be arguing the meaning behind what a desktop replacement is. A desktop replacement laptop is one that offers similar features as it's desktop counterpart. A workstation replacement is a mobile workstation that offers similar features as a workstation (ie: DCC graphics GPU). Companies that offer such replacements are Liebermann (Go-L.com), Eurocom (eurocom.com), GamePC (GamePC.com), Alienware, etc with their fast large capacity hard drives, dual layer DVD burners, interchangeable PCI-Express GPU, 16-17" high resolution WXGA screens, firewire, support for HDTV, Mobile P4-HT or AMD64 processors, etc. Each distributor offers something a little differant but I think everone understands better what "desktop replacement" truly means.
