Dell XPS 17 review: A mobile workstation in disguise


Need a large, 17-inch laptop with fantastic performance? The Dell XPS 17 is in a league of its own.

“The Dell XPS 17 is unrivaled in extra large, powerful laptops.”

Dell XPS 17 review: big screen dream


All the multitasking you could ask for

Big, bright screen ; Comfortable keyboard and trackpad ; Good performance

Pricey ; Hefty size and weight ; No ports other than USB-C

Dell’s latest XPS 17 is very similar to the model from 2020 but with a refreshed processor and graphics card. It’s the laptop to get if you want a big screen and power and don’t plan to move it around much.

Dell XPS 17 (9710) Review


Elegant design ; Gorgeous 17-inch 4K touch screen ; Available Nvidia GeForce RTX graphics ; Large touchpad ; Four Thunderbolt 4 ports

Pricey as configured ; Shorter battery life than expected ; No USB Type-A ports

Well-equipped (as it should be for nearly $3,000), the Dell XPS 17 is the standard-bearer for non-gaming 17-inch laptops.

Dell XPS 17 review: The ultimate content creation laptop


The Dell XPS 17 9710 packs in an Intel 11th-gen CPU, Nvidia RTX graphics, and a giant screen to offer the ultimate content creation experience.

Huge 17-inch screen in a relatively compact laptop ; Intel's newest 11th gen CPU and Nvidia RTX graphics

No USB-A port and no Gigabit Ethernet ; Hybrid charging likely sacrifices a little performance

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.

Dell XPS 17 (2021) review


The best 17-inch laptop retains the throne

Powerful overall and gaming performance ; Sleek, attractive design ; Excellent speakers ; Comfortable keyboard ; Runs cool

Display could be more vivid ; Below-average battery life

The Dell XPS 17 offers excellent power on the multitasking and gaming front, with great audio and a comfortable keyboard, but the battery life could be better.

Dell XPS 17 9710 11th Gen Intel Laptop Review: Small Changes That Matter


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...

faster and more consistent performance than XPS 17 9700;battery no longer discharges when running high loads;accessible 2x SODIMM + 2x M.2 2280 PCIe 4 SSD slots;very high screen-to-body ratio;plenty of Thunderbolt 4 ports

slightly below average GeForce RTX 3060 performance;very warm core temperatures when under load;no integrated USB-A or HDMI ports;no improvements to battery life;still no webcam shutter

2021 Dell XPS 17 9710 review: The best 17" laptop you can buy


The 2021 Dell XPS 17 9710 is a big laptop, but it's not as unruly as you might think, and it's the best 17" laptop you can buy today.

Dell's XPS design is truly the best in the PC business right now ; The 4K display is fantastic but don't worry because the 1080p display is amazing too ; Outstanding performance with NVIDIA Graphics ; Keyboard and trackpad are industry leaders for PCs...

Enough with 720p webcams Dell, do better! ; This can get pricey once you start upgrading the base model ; While Dell has done a lot to make a 17" laptop easier to carry, it is till heavier than other laptops and some may find it too heavy.

Dell XPS 17 9710 review


In our Dell XPS 17 9710 review, we see if Dell's powerful, slimline laptop justifies its price tag

Snappy performance for work and gaming ; Thin for a 17-inch laptop ; Excellent display with HDR

Loud under intense workload ; Unimpressive battery life

The Dell XPS 17 9710 is impressive indeed, a capable and compelling choice for creative professionals looking for a powerful machine for both their intensive workloads and their after-work gaming pursuits.

Dell XPS 17 9710 (2021) Review


The Dell XPS 17 makes a great first impression. But push it hard and you'll see its performance is limited.

Large, attractive display ; Enjoyable keyboard ; Luxurious design

Disappointing performance ; Mediocre battery life ; Terrible webcam
