Excerpt: Asus's massive X71SL is a 17in laptop with a Blu-ray drive and a dedicated graphics card. It has a full-sized keyboard and numeric keypad, plus all the expansion ports you might need, yet costs just £650. Considering its size, it's no surprise that it weighs in at 3.7kg, making it the heaviest laptop here. It also has a screen resolution of 1,440x900. It certainly isn't the most attractive laptop we've seen.
