For $1799, the Dell XPS 17 (1710X) is a grand deal. You get lots of RAM, plenty of hard drive space, and most importantly, heaps of CPU and graphics grunt. We like the fact that modern ports such as DisplayPort and USB 3.0 are standard and that it has a built-in digital TV tuner and Blu-ray drive, but we lament the lack of a remote control and an ExpressCard slot. Furthermore, we think that the touchscreen isn't really that useful.

Bigger, faster, better? After recently looking closer at the 15 inch alternative from Dell's newest multimedia offspring, the 17 inch, XPS 17 now has to prove itself in the editorial office. Find out if the premium product of Dell's multimedia notebook range can meet the high expectations in this review.

Battery life is also decent, especially for a meaty desktop replacement laptop. With the included 6-cell battery, expect to get about 4 hours of battery life and with an optional 9-cell battery, Dell says you can get 7.5 hours of life. We did notice that when running on battery power, the laptop does get very hot and the fans turn up to a very loud speed, so make sure to keep it well-ventilated at all times to prevent overheating.

Overall, the latest edition of the Dell XPS 17 is a chip off the old block. None of the individual components stand out, and, on the surface, performance isn't something to write home about either, compared with other systems in this class. But the whole is definitely greater than the sum of the parts, so if you have a need for a desktop replacement that offers pretty decent gaming performance and Blu-ray playback, the XPS 17 is worth a close look. Still, we do wish it offered 1080p.

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.

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.

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?

Dell reviews


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

NVIDIA GeForce GT 445M:

GF106-based card with only 144 Shaders. Memory bandwidth may be 128 bits or 192 bits, depending on the model.

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

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.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 550M:

Performance-level graphics card for laptops based on the old 400M series but with support for DDR3 at 900MHz.

» 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.  

740QM:

The Core i7-740QM is a high-end quad-core CPU for laptops (in 2010) with a relative small base clock rate and a high Turbo Boost max frequency of 2.93 GHz (for one core). Therefore, it combines the advantages of a slow clocked quad core CPU with a fast single core one. Compared to the faster Core i7 mobile CPUs, the 740QM only features 6MB L3 Cache.

840QM: The Core i7-840QM is a high-end quad core CPU for laptops that clocks due to the Turbo Mode from 1.86-3.2 GHz. Therefore, the processor combines the advantages of fast single core CPUs and slow quad-core CPUs. Hyperthreading allows the simultaneous use of 8 Threads in parallel. 

2630QM: Fast Quad-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. 

2670QM: Fast Quad-core processor clocked at 2.2-3.1 GHz based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. 

Intel Core i5:

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.

2410M:

Dual-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. The CPU is clocked at 2.3 GHz (Turbo Boost 2.6-2.9 GHz) and the GPU at 650 (1200 MHz Turbo).


» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


3.4 kg:

This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.

4 kg:


78.12%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
