A common term for a full-fat website, as opposed to a mobile site, is
"desktop site".

Some examples:

"Mobile | Desktop"

"Mobile [/] Desktop"

"Desktop site"

"Desktop version"

"View desktop version"

"View Google in: Mobile | Classic"

"Classic site"

"full site"

"Exit the Mobile Edition (view the standard browser version)."

It doesn't really matter that you may use the desktop website on your
laptop, especially as my laptop is on the desk and my desktop is on
the floor.
