Dell Studio 1735 review


Reviewed: a stunning desktop replacement with sufficient power to meet your every need

Great desktop replacement ; Highly comfortable to use ; Quick and nimble performance

Basic 1440 x 900 pixel native resolution

The Dell Studio 1735 is a great machine that feels comfortable to use. The build quality is high and is matched by an equally stunning performance. We're not sure who this new range is ideally aimed at, though - after all, it offers the look of an XPS...

Dell Studio 17 (1735)


Dell's new Studio 17 is a stylish leviathan of a notebook that's geared towards home users, with an emphasis on multimedia. It's well designed and has...

Excellent screen, good usability, eSATA port, HDMI port, latest connectivity options, interesting design options

No Blu-ray drive, heavy

If you're looking for a desktop replacement with processing power, plenty of storage, an excellent screen and great connectivity options then the Dell Studio 17 (1735) is a hard product to beat.

Dell Studio s1745-3691MBU


I have Core i7, 6GB RAM, 64-bit operating system, 500 gb of space, and ATI MOBILITY RADEON HD 4650 1GB. My goal was to not have to buy a new computer for a long time. I believe this will due for a very long time. I have had for almost a year and have...

Mobile desktop great for work, play games, or watch movies. HDMI, I connect it to my TV and watch all the shows and movies I want. Speakers sound excellent, movies look amazing. Can have endless programs open without it slowing. Keyboard light

The mouse pad is a little big and your palm will hit sometimes on accident. However, lowering the sensitivity helps a little

Dell Studio s1745-3691MBU


When buying my laptop I wanted something large, something powerful and something that would last at around $800. I searched everywhere, both online and off. After two months I settled on the Dell Studio 17. The Dell Studio 17 was the cheapest of the...

Fast, durable, large screen, number pad, like the media buttons

Pre-installed software needs to be removed

Dell Studio s1745-3691MBU


I added a few more bells and whistles to my laptop, so the final price was considerably higher than the $780 listed by CNET. However, I'm not complaining. I don't think I paid to much for this computer. Everything works smoothly. It's my first laptop,...

It's powerful and fast. It's light and has a good sound and video card. It charges quickly. Dell's customer service is legendary, and I've had great experience with their customer service dept

Battery doesn't really last nearly as long as described.. My nine hour battery is ready for a charge after about five hours of continuous use. After checking around, I'm finding that is very typical

Dell Studio s1745-3691MBU


I recent bought this 1745 and for the most part I'm happy with it. I had the previous version of this computer (1737) which was stolen (long story) so I bought a new one with the insurance money. This unit is loaded. It came with Blu-Ray, Blue-Tooth ,4...

Love the screen and the speed

No TV tuner

Dell Studio s1745-3691MBU


After much research, I purchased this computer with great confidence in early December. I was very pleased with my initial assessment. However, the dvd/cd started to skip whenever I played a cd, including a brand new cd, in the slot drive. It would...

Extremely fast processor. Sleek, ergonomic design. Great speaker sound. Brilliant display. Multiple input capabilities. Responsive keyboard. All the computer you need for the price

Dvd/cd slot drive has major technical issues. Very large mousepad causes occasional unintended cursor placement

Dell Studio s1745-3691MBU


One of the drawbacks I have heard is the weight. When did eight pounds become heavy? We need to get to the gym more. I carry it everywhere and I swear it feels lighter than my four year old fifteen inch. It is big and if I were traveling all over for...

Plenty of RAM (4 gigs) and Hard Drive (2 x 320 gigs). Large Screen and full sized keyboard with back lighting and numeric key pad that I missed for the last four years in my 15 inch. Fast and efficient. Three USB ports and other connections

There is not much I have found to dislike

Dell Studio s1745-3691MBU


At under $800, this is the best computer for its price right now, see specs listed under "Pros" above. No Blu Ray, but who really cares? Don't we all stream vids/movies on computers now anyhow?

7200 rpm Hard Drive

No Blu Ray (but not really that important IMO)

Great Charger


I bought this charger after buying a knock off at a competitor's store that only lasted me a few months. This one has been great/
