Laptops & Notebooks: Dell XPS M1710 (Blu-ray)

 

The Dell XPS M1710 (Blu-ray) is still the best gaming laptop in the market when you factor in its new video card and a processor that can be tweaked. The Blu-ray experience, for the most part, is positive, but needs improvement.

Blazing gaming performance. Blu-ray playback is picture-perfect. Users can overclock the processor all the way up to 3.16 GHz. Terrific 1080p resolution.

MCE remote that doesn't come standard.

Dell XPS M1710 Review

 

Giant-sized notebook offers processing and graphics power to spare plus a nice screen, but it's not particularly portable.

Fast and powerful ; Giant-sized display

Pricey and barely portable

Dell hasn't left much out of the M1710, and its high weight and price reflect that. However, if you're a desktop user who's put off buying a notebook for fear of giving up power, this notebook could be the one for you

Dell XPS M1710 Review (pics, specs)

 

The Dell XPS M1710 is the latest premium gaming notebook from Dell that replaces the current XPS M170. The M1710 has a 17 widescreen and comes in a choice of two colors, formula red or metallic black. On the inside it houses the 2.16GHz Intel Core Duo...

Unmatched 3D performance, fantastic for gaming or high-end 3D tasks Cool and quiet, even when gaming for hours Very cool looking, especially the lights -- could be mistaken as UFO from a distance Great keyboard Nice screen, very bright and good colors

Wireless problems, for this pre-production unit at least Area below LCD and top of keyboard has some flex No PCMCIA card slot for any accessories you had for older notebooks Want it? Show Dell the money! Premium notebooks command a premium $$ price

The conclusion is quite simple for the M1710: If this were the state fair and the contest were for best performance notebook, then the blue ribbon would go to the XPS M1710. The coolest thing being, you could even adjust the lights on the M1710 to blue...

Like the old XPS M170, the new XPS M1710 is equipped with six grills, lacing the laptop's edges, that light up in a myriad of user-definable colors. You can customize the LED lights to match the XPS's red color or choose from among the 15 other colors...

Aggressive red styling. nVidia GeForce Go 7900 GTX. Intel Core Duo processor. Excellent instant-on media software

Expensive. Lacks an integrated TV tuner

The first red gaming notebook from Dell and the fastest mobile gaming rig we've tested, thanks to a new graphics chip and a dual-core processor.

HardwareCentral - Dell XPS M1710 Review.

 

At 2.33GHz, the Core 2 Duo T7600 is Intel's fastest mobile CPU, flaunting not only its clock speed but 4MB of Level 2 cache shared by the two processor cores and a 667MHz front-side bus. Check the box marked T7600G on Dell's order form, and just one...
