Model:

Most users would require a standard consumer laptop with an i5 or even an i7 processor with around 8 GB of RAM. The Dell precision 7730, on the other hand, is on the extreme side of the consumer laptop. Being in the Precision series, it is generally designed for industrial usage, i.e. for software simulations, heavy graphics processing and even heavy virtual reality simulations. For a start, this laptop is not ultra-portable or sleek. It tries to be one, but it definitely does not even get close to that. It weighs 3.17 kg, which is heavy even for something in its category. Most gaming laptops with ultra-high specs weigh much less than this. For a 17-inch laptop, it is also much wider and bigger than others in this category. With its carbon fiber lid and metal frame, the laptop certainly looks durable and shouts professional. The soft-touch panel on the inside gives off the XPS vibe, and its industrial silver and black colours provide a pleasant look for the eye. On the back side of the laptop are the aggressive dual vents meant for keeping this laptop cool even under pressure. There is a wide range of ports available in this laptop. On the right side are the Kensington lock, headphone/mic port and two USB 3.1 Type-A ports. On the left are a smart-card reader, an SD-card slot and two Thunderbolt 3 ports. The rear part houses an HDMI port, a mini DisplayPort, an Ethernet port, another USB 3.1 Type-A port and the DC power jack. In terms of hardware, Dell provides a lot of customizable options for it, but the base spec is good enough for some serious power users. There is an Intel Core i9 processor coupled with 32 GB of DDR4 RAM with a 512GB high-speed NAND flash drive. And if that is not enough, this laptop can be configured with an Intel Core Xeon processor and up to 64 GB of RAM. For those who are concerned about graphics, this laptop can be configured with an NVIDIA Quadro P5200, which has 16 GB of GDDR5 RAM.

The 17.3-inch display can be configured to sport a 4K resolution, which is not so common on laptops. The matte display is reportedly a very high quality display in terms of color accuracy and brightness. Running graphics right on the laptop screen is thus not a problem. The bezels around the screen, on the other hand, are an eyesore. In these bezel-less times, it is really hard to see something with this kind of borders surrounding the display. The laptop is shipped with Microsoft Windows 10 Pro by default. The chiclet style keyboard looks like one of those uncomfortable ultrabook keyboards, but make no mistake, the keyboard and number pad have been reported to be nice to use, even in long typing sessions. Its tactile and well backlit keys are also well-spaced. The track pad is relatively small but precise, and it registers multi-touch gestures accurately. Now, for the drawbacks: The Precision 7730 comes with a rather small battery. It only comes with a 97Wh 6-cell battery and, for a laptop with these specs, this certainly is not enough for long usage. Typical heavy usage might give just slightly over 4 hours of usage, which certainly is not food for portability. Though they might sound loud enough, the speakers are not particularly good for media playback. If used for applications that require some sound playback, it is highly advisable to connect them to an external speaker. The Dell Precision 7730, then, is a laptop made for a very specific type of user. Like other models in this range, the laptop is mostly purchased by big corporations for their Engineers or Designers. For that alone, this laptop is certainly one of the best out there, considering the support Dell gives for this laptop.

17.3":

This large display size is used for laptops which are mainly intended for an use on a desk.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

In most countries, the laptops are directly sold to consumers by Dell and each notebook custom-assembled according to a selection of options. In 2014, the global market share of Dell laptops was 12.3% and it is 14% in 2016.

80%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
