The Heaviest

Name: [[xref:|Dell XPS M2010|Dell XPS M2010]]

Price: $969 and up

Availability: Limited; refurbished computers only

Extreme spec: 18.30 pounds

Reasons to love it: If you're a fitness freak, this just might be the laptop for you. Put the 18.3-pound Dell XPS M2010 into your backpack, and you have a handy training weight for hiking sessions or impromptu bicep curls.

Dell is discontinuing the M2010, and only refurbished models are available now, so you'll have to act fast if you want an electronic anvil to call your very own. The M2010 rocks an Intel Core 2 Duo processor, up to 4GB of DDR2 memory, a 20.1-inch screen, eight speakers and a subwoofer, and a maximum 500GB hard drive.

The M2010 is so big that you might mistake it for a desktop all-in-one machine. It is technically a portable--but if you’re planning on toting it around, remember to use your knees when lifting.
