Reviews for the Dell Inspiron 1750
Big’n'Cheap. The notion that notebooks with a large display are also expensive is refuted with the latest Dell Inspiron 1750. The notebook is already configurable starting at 399.00 Euros, although it's possible to quickly beat this bargain with a few special requests. Now, find out what the DTR notebook with an office configuration really has to offer.
Desktop replacements need to have more power than a military junta right? Well, not according to Dell. It’s Inspiron 1750 rocks the requisite 17-inch screen, indicating it wants you to sling your monitor and tower combo. In all, the Dell Inspiron 1750 isn’t the ultimate desktop replacement. Yes it’s cheap, but if you want an all-rounder for a similar price but with better skills, you’d be better off downsizing and trying a different machine altogether. The Samsung R530 might be a good place to start.

A comfortable desktop replacement, but the keyboard disappoints. The Dell Inspiron 1750 is a large, comfortable laptop that offers plenty of performance and, considering its size, portability. Despite its durability and keyboard issues, the Inspiron 1750 is a comfortable desktop replacement that provides decent performance at a competitive price. Those after a little more should check out the Acer Aspire 7736G-663G25Mn, however.

The Dell Inspiron 1750 (2211MBU) ($729.98 list) falls into the desktop replacement category by virtue of its roomy 17.3-inch display, but in practice it's not going to replace your desktop unless you're trading in an old or entry-level PC. The system won't impress gamers, video editors, and other power users on the prowl for a big, multimedia powerhouse, but it offers ample performance for mainstream use, particularly for the price. A basic, low-cost desktop replacement, the Dell Inspiron 1750 (I1750-2211MBU) pairs a huge 17.3-inch display with mainstream components for big-screen bargain hunters.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 4500MHD: Onboard (shared Memory) GPU built in the GM45, GE45 and GS45 chipset (Montevina). Because of two more shaders and a higher core clock, much faster than the old GMA X3100. Still not advisable for gamers (DirectX 10 games not playable or only with very low settings). The integrated video processor is able to help decode HD videos (AVC/VC-2/MPEG2) , e.g., for a fluent Blu-Ray playback with slow CPUs.
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
Intel Pentium Dual Core: The return of the name Pentium, though it is a Yonah core. In fact, it is a double Core processor with a very good relation of performance to current consumption.
Entry class dual core CPU with 1 MB level 2 cache and no virtualization technology. Compared to the Core 2 Duo line, some power saving mechanism are deactivated.
