Reviews for the Dell XPS 17 9700 Core i7 RTX 2060 Max-Q

87.9% Dell XPS 17 9700 Core i7 Laptop Review: Pretty Much A MacBook Pro 17 | Notebookcheck
Can Dell dominate the 17-inch market the same way it captured the 15-inch market? The XPS 17 is surprisingly compact with specifications that read like something twice the size, but a few small details miss the mark.

Dell XPS 17 Review
Source: Mobile Tech Review English
Lisa Gade reviews the Dell XPS 17 (9700), the new 17” model in the XPS lineup of premium laptops. Though the footprint isn’t much bigger than the already compact and slim XPS 15, Dell managed to pack a 17” IPS class 16:10 aspect ratio display. It’s available with a full HD+ or wide gamut 4K+ display, both rated at 500 nits with HDR 400 support. The notebook runs Windows 10 on Intel 10th gen, 45 watt CPUs up to an 8-core i9. It’s available with NVIDIA RTX 2060 Max-Q or GTX 1650 Ti dedicated graphics. It has an MS Precision trackpad, white backlit keyboard, 4 Thunderbolt 3 ports, Wi-Fi 6, upgradable RAM and M.2 SSDs and two forms of biometrics. It’s geared toward content creation and consumption, though it can handle some gaming too.

83% Dell XPS 17 review: The big screen returns in a slim, stylish shell
Source: CNet English
The new Dell XPS 17 makes a big first impression, and that's not only because it's the first 17-inch XPS laptop in almost a decade. Compared to the last XPS 17 we reviewed long ago, or even most modern 17-inch laptops, it's (relatively) small, with a slim, top-of-the-line design and a tiny-bezeled 4K-plus calibrated display.

86% Dell XPS 17 review (2020): So. Much. Screen.
Source: Engadget English
Dell’s largest XPS laptop in years is appealing to anyone who demands the most performance possible and an enormous screen. It’s a bit hefty, but still far smaller than 17-inch laptops from years ago.

Source: The Verge English
In short, this isn’t the best laptop for anyone who’s mostly working in Chrome around the house or in libraries or coffee shops. It’s really for power users who might need to occasionally work on the go and who have found that smaller screens and lower-powered systems fall short of their needs. For that person, this is the best laptop to buy.

If you’re looking for a true competitor to the 16-inch MacBook Pro, look no further. The $3,049 Dell XPS 17 can handle all of your productivity/creativity/multimedia needs thanks to its 10th Gen Intel processor and Nvidia RTX 2060, two powerful components that help the XPS 17 surpass its competitors in many categories. Plus, you get a stunning display, excellent sound system and an agile SSD –– all in a chassis that’s 48% smaller than most 15-inch laptops on the market. And despite its super high-res display, it lasted over 9 hours on our battery test.

The XPS 17 is the first new 17-inch member of the XPS family in nearly a decade. The last one, the XPS 17 L702X, was introduced in 2011 with standout feature options that now seem quaint. (Up to 4GB of memory, anyone? An optional "3D" display?)
