Dell's Studio XPS 16 added a level of class to their Studio lineup and it continues to do so. Also back are the high color LED backlit displays that are some of the finest in the market. The Core i7 quad core processor adds additional performance. The problem is that many other elements have not been upgraded including a graphics processor many games may be disappointed with and a tendency to run a bit too warm compared to the competition.

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4670: Higher clocked version of the Mobilty HD 4650. Supports the Avivo HD technology. The performance of the cards depends on the used type of memory (DDR2, DDR3, GDDR3 possible) and should lie somewhere between the desktop HD 4650 and 4670.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these 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.

P9700: Very fast dual core CPU and due to the 28 Watt TDP also power efficient. Compared to other P-models, the P9700 offers the full 6MB level 2 cache.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
