Reviews for the Dell XPS 17 9710 Core i7 RTX 3060

87.9% Dell XPS 17 9710 11th Gen Intel Laptop Review: Small Changes That Matter | Notebookcheck
The first generation XPS 17 9700 was one of the best-looking 17-inch laptops with Core-H and GeForce RTX graphics, but it had some under-the-hood peculiarities that needed to be ironed out. The new XPS 17 9710 addresses the underlying issues while boosting performance by quite the margin.
80% Dell XPS 17 review: Serious power in a portable package
Source: It Pro English
The Dell XPS 17 shows how far portable computing has come. Like the ASUS ProArt Studiobook Pro 16 OLED, it delivers a huge amount of computing power in a form that you can conceivably carry around and use on the go. It also illustrates that Intel’s 11th Generation Core i7 processors are competitive with AMD’s Ryzen 9 on a mobile platform, particularly with everyday media applications. The XPS has a great screen, a powerful GPU, and it’s still reasonably thin. Although the ASUS ProArt Studiobook Pro 16 OLED pips it in a few areas, with an even more vibrant screen, the Dell XPS 17 is a great all-rounder for professional creative work on the move.

80% Dell XPS 17 review: big screen dream
Source: The Verge English
It’s hard to compare the XPS 17 to similar computers simply because there just aren’t that many. Most other 17-inch laptops are colossal gaming rigs, with terrible battery life and even more heft. LG’s Gram 17 is unique in that it has a large screen, but it doesn’t pack the performance chops of the XPS 17. Apple’s latest 16-inch MacBook Pro is probably the closest option, with a slightly smaller screen, better performance (outside of gaming), and a lighter chassis at a slightly higher price. But if you don’t like MacOS or just want an even bigger screen, the XPS 17 stands alone. It might just be the ideal work-from-home laptop for those without dedicated desks to work on.

Source: Techradar English
The Dell XPS 17 is an incredibly powerful laptop that is easy to carry around due to its thin and lightweight design. However, the high price and lack of legacy ports may stop some folks from going all-in on this luxurious laptop. The Dell XPS 17 is for the creative professional on the go that wants an extremely powerful and versatile PC, but one that's stylish and won't look out of place in an office. However, its thinness does end up being kind of its bane in that regard, as the port selection isn't quite what you may want to see.

Dell XPS 17 9710 (2021) Review
Source: Mobile Tech Review English
Dell’s 17” XPS slim and light laptop / premium mobile workstation is back for a second generation in 2021 with a striking wide gamut 4+ display option, NVIDIA RTX 3050 and RTX 3060 graphics, and the usual CNC aluminum chassis with carbon fiber interior. The XPS 17 (9710) targets content creators (and content consumers!) with that big 16:10 aspect ratio display, Intel 11th gen 45 watt Core i5, i7 and i9 processors, expandable RAM and storage and quite good quad stereo speakers. The notebook PC has Thunderbolt 4, a full size SD card slot and both a fingerprint scanner and Windows Hello camera. It directly competes with the 16” M1 MacBook Pro and Razer blade 17.

Dell’'s XPS Is A Big, Luxurious Laptop With Mediocre Performance
Source: Reviewed.com English
Dell’s XPS 17 is easy to like. The display is excellent, it feels solid, and it looks gorgeous. However, its performance doesn’t stand out from the crowd. The same applies to battery life. Many owners won’t notice the XPS 17’s limits, but they’re noticeable when you push the laptop hard. Dell’s pricing makes that a problem. An entry-level Dell XPS 17 with an Intel Core i5 processor and integrated graphics starts at $1,599.99, but the laptop we tested here retails for $2,799.99. That’s a lot for a machine with so-so performance and ho-hum battery life. Apple’s MacBook Pro 14 has an edge. It delivers way better battery life and improved performance in many situations, though the Dell XPS 17 will lead in gaming. If gaming is your top priority, however, you’ll see more value from a dedicated gaming laptop like the Razer Blade Advanced. The XPS 17’s saving grace is, well, its grace. It is (along with the XPS 13 and XPS 15) the most luxurious Windows laptop you can buy. Even Apple could learn from the XPS 17’s soft-touch interior and razor-thin bezels.

98% 2021 Dell XPS 17 9710 review: The best 17″ laptop you can buy
Source: Techaeris English
The 2021 Dell XPS 17 9710 isn’t much different from the 9700. I’d imagine if you wanted to save a bit of cash, you could pick a 9700 up at a discount and get much the same experience. But for those who want more power and newer hardware, the XPS 17 9710 is still one of the best laptops on the market. As a user of both Apple MacBooks and Windows laptops, the XPS can be considered a MacBook killer in many ways.

Dell XPS 17 Review: The ultimate laptop for creators
Source: On MSFT English
Though it's an expensive venture that adds up to $2,600 on Dell.com, this XPS 17 model that we're reviewing is one of the best laptops money can buy. Thanks to the immersive 17-inch screen, Intel's H-series processor, as well as the Nvidia GPU, there isn't anything this laptop can't handle. Other than the Razer Blade 17, it's one of the most powerful options for content creators, and can go above and beyond standards.

80% Dell XPS 17 9710 laptop review: powerful, not portable
Source: T3 English
To sum up the XPS 17 in one word: Big. It’s a big laptop with a big screen, big storage and big performance. Do you need that much in a portable package? Most users won’t, and I would suggest that most people may be better off looking at the XPS 15, which has similar performance in a much more portable package. But if you need to be able to crunch humongous spreadsheets, attack demons with chainsaws and handle pretty much any other computing task you can think of, the XPS 17 can handle it. As long as you have the shoulders big enough to carry it, that is.

80% Dell XPS 17 review: The ultimate content creation laptop
Source: PC World English
We can understand why some people don’t quite get why the XPS 17 even exist. It’s arguably a “niche” laptop that’s easily outperformed by 17.3-inch gaming laptops and on the face of it, it’s “only” one-inch larger than 16-inch laptops. To sum up, if you want to pack the largest screen you can into the sleekest laptop possible, and spend a big chunk of time running Adobe apps, it would be pretty hard to beat the XPS 17 9710 . Sure, that’s definitely a niche, but it’s not a bad niche to be in.

You’re getting the maximum amount of screen real-estate in a laptop, but in a package that’s only an inch wider than most thin 15.6-inch gaming laptops. Even against the new crop of 16-inch laptops, you’re still getting a considerable amount more screen real estate.

The refreshed Dell XPS 17 is a sleek, powerful notebook with enough graphics capability for all but the most intense 3D games, together with a gorgeous 17-inch 4K display. If you're a fan of the biggest screen you can get, it's a refreshing alternative to bulky 17-inch gaming rigs and also a better buy than Apple's 16-inch MacBook Pro, which still uses older-generation Intel processors. If you just want a large-screen desktop replacement and can live without GeForce RTX graphics, the LG Gram 17 is considerably lighter and less expensive, and Dell's smaller XPS 15 is another excellent choice if you crave power and style but can make do with slightly less screen real estate. Otherwise, the XPS 17 is the ultimate jumbo laptop.

Sometimes a simple spec change is all that’s needed to keep you at the top of the heap. Such is the case with the Dell XPS 17. Thanks to its 11th Gen Intel processor and 30-series Nvidia GPU, the premium system has more than enough power to keep even its fiercest competitors struggling to keep up. And it doesn’t hurt that the laptop has a large, bright display, a great pair of speakers, and a comfy keyboard. However, for $2,949, I wish the display was more vivid and the battery life leaves something to desire. If you’re on the hunt for longevity with comparable power, the 16-inch MacBook Pro is the way to go (although you might want to hold off until Apple’s next event). If you’re searching for an ultra-lightweight system with endurance, the LG Gram 17 is your laptop. But if you’re looking for the Cadillac of premium laptops, you’ll be hard-pressed to outdo the Dell XPS 17.

Dell XPS 17 9710 Review: A Superb 17-Inch Premium Laptop
Source: Hot Hardware English
Overall, the 2021 Dell XPS 17 is the notebook for folks who want the most portability possible while still retaining a large, bright, and sharp display. Its footprint is much closer to that of some 15" notebooks, but with a big, beautiful 17-inch 16:10 panel to work with. The XPS 17's productivity performance is excellent while its gaming capabilities are very solid as well. The XPS 17's battery life up-time was also very good, especially considering that 17-inch 4K panel. The Dell XPS 17 model we tested delivers the total package, and it should for the high-end price tag our machine commands. Regardless, laptop consumers in the market for a machine with a premium, high-end display and a top-notch PC platform to drive it would do well to start with the new Dell XPS 17.
