Reviews for the Dell XPS 17-L701X

80% Dell XPS 17 (L701X) Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English

Decent build quality, a stylish design, good usability, impressive specifications, all the connectivity you could ever want and some of the best speakers to be found on a laptop make a strong case for Dell's new XPS 17. Only its distinctly underwhelming screen prevents this 17.3in laptop from picking up a recommended award.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce GT 435M: GF108 based mid-range graphics card with DX11 support.

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

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


460M: The Core i5-460M has only 3 MB L3 Cache (compared to the I7-620M) and clocks between 2.53-2.8 GHz (Turbo Mode). Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


17.3": Meanwhile the 17 inch display size is a more frequently offered standard format for desktop-replacements. The DTR-laptops can't be carried easily, need much energy but on the other side texts can be read easily and high resolutions are no problem. DTR mainly are intended for stationary usage on desks, where the weight and the energy need are unimportant.

3.4 kg: This laptop is heavy below average, compared with the average of notebooks. Therefore especially desktop replacements fit in this class of weight.
