What Brands Offer the Best 17 Inch Monitor?

Published at 03/28/2012 01:02:02


17 inch laptops are the king of the industry, as they hold the most power, the fastest performance, are made from the best materials, have the brightest screens and the strongest graphical performances. That's also why they are called "desktop replacements", because of their large " 17 monitors and exceptional performance.

Of course, not all "17  monitors (the " symbol represents inches) are that good, or even worth the price, there's plenty of crappy " 17 monitors to go around and waste your hard earned money on.

So, we are here to show which brands offer the best " 17 monitors, their history, features and we'll also add some tips and hints along the way as well.




 "17  monitors were actually first on the market, laptops become smaller in size, not bigger. The best 17 inch monitor today are made by HP, Apple, Acer, Lenonvo, Toshiba, Alienware and Asus. These companies realized that heavy duty users kept their laptops permanently attached to a power source, so they decided it was time it make powerful laptops , that were big, powerful and didn't really require very long battery lives. Of course, over time, they realized they should improve battery lives as well, and Apple led the bandwagon of long lived laptops with their new line of Macbook pros.

HP immodestly pored a new line of long lived laptops, Asus followed on HP's heels, Lenovo didn't lag behind either, Toshiba never really managed this feat, and Alienware simply do not give a crap.




Different laptop companies offer different feature on their 17 inch monitors. Some offer little more than the screen at a cheap price, but than you have premium 17 inch monitors that are worth the cash.

The first 17 inch monitor that is truly stunning, is the Alienware M18x, which  actually has a 18 inch monitor. It has the latest and greatest in components, It has a second generation iCore7 processor, which runs at 2.7 GHz, it boasts over 16 GB of Ram, runs Windows 7 Premium, has a Native Resolution of 1920 x 1080, weighs 12 pounds, uses a nVidia GeForce GTX 580M graphics card, with 2 GB of memory, with 1 Terabyte of HDD memory and 7,200 RPM (rotations per minute) HDD. When it comes to sheer brute force and power, no laptop on earth can beat the Alienware M18x, it also costs about $3,000.

Second in line, is the 17 inch monitor of the Macbook pro, which sports Apple's premium uni-body aluminum design, large track pad, bright screen, and island-style keyboard. This laptop is mainly for Apple  and OS X diehards only, as it only has a 500 GB HDD, which rotates at 5,200 RPM, a AMD Radeon HD 6750M graphics ward with only 512 MB of memory, a integrated Intel HD 3000 GPU, and only about 4 GB of RAM. All in all, a middle of the road performance. What's stunning though is the battery life, this thing can last for nearly five hours. Which is a feat no other laptop on this list can replicate.

Last but not least, we have the HP Envy 17, which boasts a 1080p HD (LCD) screen, 8 GB RAM, a AMD Radeon HD 7690M graphics card with 1 GB of memory, a 750 GB HDD spinning at 7,200 RPM, and a two year warranty. I thinks it's a better deal than the Apple laptop.
