Reviews for the Dell Studio 1735
Source: Inside HW
The price tag for this notebook (1270€) may look too high, but don’t forget about display that supports resolution up to 1920x1200 and its exceptional quality. Also with this model you get Radeon HD 3650 that can be used for playing most of new games but not on highest settings. This graphics card can “maybe” be overclocked but that is something that we don’t encourage you to do. Bear in mind that there are different configurations of Dell Studio 17 available with same quality build, so if you don’t care that much about good display you can change it and get lower price for notebook with similar characteristics.

The Dell Studio 1735 is a great machine that feels comfortable to use. The build quality is high and is matched by an equally stunning performance. We're not sure who this new range is ideally aimed at, though - after all, it offers the look of an XPS but not the budget pricing of an Inspiron. However, it proved a highly effective desktop replacement.

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3650: The Hd 3650 is a middle class graphics card (in 2008) and compareable to an 8600M GT GPU from Nvidia. It is fabricated in 55nm process and due to Avivo video engine the graphic card can support the processor with several video operations (HD video too).
Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.
Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).
The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.
