There’s one word that best describes the Dell XPS 17: balanced. Dell’s well-rounded workhorse doesn’t set records in any particular area but delivers solid results across the board. It offers forward-looking connectivity, a massive screen, strong CPU and GPU performance, and good battery life. And it does all this at a reasonable price. This makes the Dell XPS 17 a good fit if you want a single do-it-all machine and don’t mind lugging around a large backpack when you travel. The XPS 17 can handle any task you’ll throw at it, at home or on the go.

The updated XPS 17 is much like the previous edition, marrying everything we loved before with a faster processor. This is a relatively simple update to judge: If you own the XPS 17 (9710), the bump in performance isn’t worth upgrading, given the relative lack of change on other fronts. But if you have an older or smaller laptop and want the latest big-screen experience, the XPS 17 is just that. Our configuration is pricey but premium, and from the lower end of its configuration range to the loadout of our test model, this is still the 17-inch power-user laptop to beat.

The Dell XPS 17 (9720) maintains everything great about the previous model, including packing a massive display into about as small a chassis as is physically possible. It’s not quite the thinnest 17-inch laptop you can buy, nor is it the fastest. But it balances size and speed in a way that no other laptop does. It’s also incredibly well-built, looks great, and even offers decent battery life. Toss in one of the best IPS displays we’ve tested, and you have a highly portable machine for creators, hardcore productivity workers, and multimedia consumers. It’s not cheap, but it’s well worth the price.
