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.
