Hot blooded dandy. Dell has quite a few plans for its XPS 17 refresh. In addition to one of the latest Sandy Bridge processors and a strong DirectX 11 graphics card, the 17 incher optionally has a 3D capable 120 Hz screen. Has Mission Entertainment been successful?

It's been a while since we've been quite so blown away by a laptop. The Dell XPS 17 delivers excellent audio quality and has a GPU/CPU combo that opens the door to all kinds of uses and programs. It has a top-notch design, great handling, battery life of almost six hours and a high-contrast screen.

At Rs. 85,800, the Dell XPS 17 offers good value for money, despite its minor shortcomings. It’s designed to be a desktop replacement and it does a brilliant job at that. It also just happens to be one of the most feature rich notebooks in the market, currently. If you were out shopping for a desktop replacement notebook, then the Dell XPS 17 should be high on your list. Remember though, that this is not exactly a portable solution and the battery life is not the best, since it does not have Nvidia’s Optimus technology so you’ll have to compromise on these a bit.

The Dell XPS 17 L702X comes in at a fairly competitive price, though it still comes up short in key areas. 500GB seems small for a £1000-plus laptop and although the screen is very good the 3D capabilities are of limited appeal. But the design flaws of the Dell really make themselves obvious after a period of time; its qualities as a multimedia machine are overshadowed by noisy fans and heat issues.

The XPS 17 benefits from some very slick design, from the touchpad to the keyboard and speakers. However, it is a chunky machine, and the hard disk size on our review model was disappointingly small. While this Dell offering isn't particularly cheap, considering what you're getting here - the build quality, array of ports, solid gaming performance and a great display - it isn't a laptop you'll regret buying.

Source: CNet English
Dell's sometimes-confusing array of in-house consumer brands has been thankfully whittled down to three, and there's a clear enough delineation between them to make choosing a Dell laptop (or at least a starting point) a simple equation. Dell's XPS 17 3D is for those who want a powerful media and gaming 17-inch laptop, but in a more aesthetically upscale package than offered by Dell's Alienware brand.

In the end, Dell’s latest XPS is a solid entry into this venerable laptop series, and if you really need 3-D capabilities, it stands up as perhaps the market’s machine to beat. But at a price that approaches two grand and with some distinct drawbacks in its “con” list, you probably have to ask yourself one question before you whip out your Diner’s Club: Do you really need 3-D? Well, do ya, punk?

Weighing 3.36kg with the power brick, and measuring nearly 40mm thick in places, this is no HP Envy 17. Still, if you're looking for a capable, premium desktop replacement that can do everything, the Dell XPS 17 3D fits the bill.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce GT 555M:

As the successor to the GeForce GT 445M, the GT 555M is available in many different versions based on different chips (GF106, GF116, GF108) with different graphics memory (128 Bit, 192 Bit, DDR3, GDDR5) and  varying core speeds.

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.


Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  


2630QM: Fast Quad-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. » 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.
» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


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


Dell: Dell Inc. is a multinational technology corporation that develops, manufactures, sells, and supports personal computers and other computer-related products. Based in Texas, Dell employs more than 82,700 people worldwide (2009). In 2006, Dell purchased the computer hardware manufacturer Alienware. In most countries, the laptops are directly sold to consumers by Dell and each notebook custom-assembled according to a selection of options. Market share regarding sales of personal computers in 2007 (market research IDC): HP 18.9 %, Dell 16.4 %, Acer 9.9 %, Lenovo 7.5 %, Apple 5.7 %

Dell reviews


80.85%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
