Dell Studio 17 (Windows 7, touchscreen)

CNET
19 April 2014
  • Summary: The touchscreen Studio 17 offers good performance, but it's too expensive for a machine in Dell's mid-range series, and, at this price, it should really have a display with a 'Full HD' resolution
  • Cons: Too expensive; screen doesn't offer a 'Full HD' resolution.

Dell Studio 17 (Core i7)

LAPTOP Magazine
3 December 2009
  • Summary: Although it costs a reasonable $1,164, the Dell Studio 17 has the power of a much more expensive notebook: a blazing quad-core Intel Core i7 processor that’s perfect for multitaskers and multimedia fiends, a full gigabyte of dedicated graphics memory, a fast, 7,200-rpm hard drive, and a nine-cell battery that outlasts other desktop replacements.
  • Pros: Strong performance for the money, Crisp loud JBL speakers, Relatively long battery life, Reasonably priced,
  • Cons: Full HD display costs extra, Bottom gets hot, Keyboard has some flex,

  • Summary: Big and tough enough to look after itself, it will easily stand up to the demands of a full family battering it day in day out. What's more, it's superhero powerful, making it easier to consign your old desktop PC to the recycler.

Dell Studio 17

LAPTOP Magazine
25 June 2008
  • Summary: Sometimes you want more performance than what a typical big-screen machine offers, and on that front the Dell Studio 17 delivers. You get a fast dual-core processor, discrete graphics, a humongous hard drive, and a beautiful high-res display. And we really like what Dell has done with its Dock interface and webcam software. However, the look of the system isn’t for everyone, and we’d like to see less-finicky volume controls.
  • Pros: Vibrant display with good viewing angles, Great performance, Intuitive on-screen dock, Discrete graphics,
  • Cons: Polarizing bulky design, Finicky volume controls,

Expert Review

  • Excerpt: With the average laptop, one sticky issue is the relatively small size of the display and keyboard - a necessary trade-off to keep users from suffering muscle strain while toting the notebook around. However, if you're looking for a system that you can keep in one location the majority of the time yet pack up easily to get it out of the way when necessary, you need a desktop-replacement laptop.

Dell Studio 17 (2010) review

Pocket Lint
19 April 2010
  • Excerpt: The Dell Studio 17 1747 is a hefty beast. You'll want to use it as a desktop replacement rather than a portable to carry around with you. Still, the glossy black case with subtle patterning and red edging looks pretty neat, so it won't be out of place on your desk, whether that's in the office or bedroom.
  • Pros: Great-looking screen, responsive and fast computer chip, neat extra features and good battery life
  • Cons: Disappointing and occasionally unresponsive touchscreen, occasional lapses in styling
