Reviews for the Dell XPS M2010

90% Dell XPS M2010 Review
Source: Pocket Lint English Archive.org version
When you think of innovation, Dell isn’t the first company you’re likely to think of. After all, it’s built its business on being aggressive in established markets rather than exploring new ones. Which makes the Dell XPS M2010 even more of a curiosity. Not only is Dell breaking new ground with a completely new take on the notebook form fact it’s also the first machine we’ve seen with a 20-inch screen. (Out of interest, Acer is the only other company at the moment to offer this panel size, on the Aspire 7000 series.) Quality of the 20-inch Super-TFT screen is excellent, and displays at a WSXGA+ resolution of 1680 x 1050 pixels. Is there any bad news involved here? Well, you’ll find that the asking price for this piece of innovation is £2299 (inc. VAT). Not exactly within most people’s price range but then again this isn’t a machine to suit everyone. If you need a desktop PC in a semi-mobile form factor, this is the height of style and so unique, you’re likely to be the only person in the neighbourhood with one.

Dell is shifting the focus of its XPS systems from performance and gaming to innovative design and luxury. And this XPS M2010 is the most daring of the new range, billed as the ultimate entertainment centre. The design is sublime: the screen moves lithely over the base unit and tilts to any practical position on two sturdy arms. Then there's the slot-loading DVD writer in the centre, which whirrs up with a pleasing action and sound. The full-sized desktop keyboard complete with touchpad detaches smoothly and seamlessly switches over to Bluetooth, before recharging once slotted back in. Luxurious extras and design make this a highly desirable machine. It's ideal if space is at a premium at home;

80% Dell XPS M2010 desktop replacement
Source: vnunet.com English Archive.org version
Dell, better known for developing sturdy and rather mundane notebooks, has taken us aback with this visually stunning desktop replacement. The XPS M2010 is a huge step forward as far as design is concerned; an innovative concept that's a hybrid of a desktop and notebook. It certainly has a wow factor and impressed many, though not all, in our labs. The Dell's unconventional structure houses a 20.1in widescreen monitor, which is attached to the base via a hinge bar. This leather-bound hinge also acts as a sturdy handle for carrying the laptop. At 8.6kg, it’s far too heavy to carry around, even for short periods, but there’s no problem with moving it around the house or carrying it out to the car.

Pros: Stylish; huge monitor; great audio for a portable computer; wireless keyboard; Cons: Heavy and cumbersome; Overall: Home-entertainment enthusiasts will no doubt love the Dell XPS M2010, but it’s a novelty for everyone else and comes with a high price tag; Dell, better known for developing sturdy and rather mundane notebooks, has taken us aback with this visually stunning desktop replacement.

Dell XPS M2010
Source: Bios Magazine English Archive.org version
More consumers than ever are using their home PCs to manage digital photos, edit digital videos, watch DVDs or play games. Dell’s XPS products, when combined with TVs, flat panel displays and projectors, make these experiences richer and more enjoyable. At the moment, it seems no other company listens to its customers better than Dell. Every once in a while a laptop design blows us away with its visionary concept and bold design. Grand in every sense of the word, Dell’s XPS M2010 is just such a system. On first inspection, the big machine resembles a full-fledged desktop, yet it closes gracefully and can be carried like a huge clamshell laptop (with a handle). The one caveat: it’s too pricey for most mere mortals. Nevertheless, the XPS M2010 will be regarded by most as a dream machine. And as an added bonus, the system’s 12-cell, 112-Wh battery should last a little over 3 hours. Amazing!

Dell XPS M2010 - Mobile Entertainment PC (Centrino Duo)
Source: Hardware Zone English Archive.org version
It's not easy being king of the hill. Despite being the largest and one of the most profitable computer manufacturers worldwide, Dell does not have the charisma of an Apple, the blue-blooded reputation of IBM or the glamour of Sony. What it does offer to consumers are attractive all-year-round discounts due to the lower costs sustained by its direct sales model and excellent supply chain management. Judging from its success, this business model works but Dell just does not inspire the same kind of brand loyalty that Apple or Sony can. The company's recent acquisition of enthusiast oriented PC boutique firm - Alienware -may be a sign that Dell is aware of its relatively bland image and aims to broaden its appeal to this niche.

The Dell XPS M2010 is a wonderful piece of technology that packs great features. The very, very peppered price and the huge size make it desirable only for those to whom money is not an issue and who want to astound no matter the price. For the rest, two solutions are available: 1) look and weep and 2) win the lottery. Our marks for the Dell XPS M2010 are 8.8 for design and 8.5 for the tech specs.

Every once in a while I get a notebook that blows me away with its visionary concept and bold design. Grand in every sense of the word, the Dell XPS M2010 ($4,675 direct) is just such a system. On first inspection, the big machine resembles a full-fledged desktop, yet it closes gracefully and can be carried like a huge clamshell notebook (with a handle). The one caveat: It's too pricey for most mere mortals. As a laptop expert, I applaud the genius it takes to fit a powerful PC into a small 3.5-pound chassis. So you can imagine my reaction when this 18.1-pound behemoth with a 20.1-inch widescreen landed on my bench. The closest thing that comes to mind is the old Acer Aspire 1712, a transportable that used a desktop LCD and weighed 14 pounds.

With the XPS M2010, Dell has forgotten completely why laptops were invented in the first place. And that's a good thing--or at least an interesting thing. The company has packed an impressive multimedia experience into a form factor that's far more portable and self-contained than any other desktop PC's and considerably less compromised than that of other laptops that make do with smaller displays, cramped keyboards, and minimized feature sets. Unfortunately, with a base price of $3,500, the XPS M2010 is also about as expensive as a semester at a state college; the target market here is clearly those for whom money is no object.

Comment

ATI Mobility Radeon X1800: The ATI Mobility Radeon X1800 is a reduced version of the X1800XT with still a high current consumption.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core Duo: Double Core processor with a very good relation of performance to current consumption. The 2 MB L2 Cache are used together by the double. The maximum capacity of 31 watts is only 4 watts more than with the Pentium M (predecessor). Both cores are lowered automatically and independently of each other by speed steps down to 1 GHz. In addition it now supports also SSE3 instructions. At least it is just as fast as a equivalent Pentium M. With applications, which were designed for multi-processors, the performance can be nearly twice as fast as with the Pentium M (e.g. CineBench around 86% fast)


T2400: » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


20.10":

This format exists for huge desktop replacement laptops (DTR) and stationary screens for desktop computers and is very rare. 

DTR laptops are heavier to carry, need more power, but texts are easy to read and high resolutions are no problem. DTR are mainly intended for stationary desk use, where weight and power hunger do not matter.

Only desktop devices or large monitors should have such a weight.
