Summary: This laptop has been with me for nearly 4 years and it is still very useful to me. It is also very useful for studies as it has a 4-5 hour battery life. I found it amazing to take notes with and all of it's features are pretty useful. Yes, this laptop may be outdated in this time, but at a 5.5 Windows Index Rating (at least that's what mine said) it is not weak in this performance dominant environment. Of course that depends on what you plan to do with this laptop.
Summary: I bought this about 4 years ago brand new and it has been great for me. 1080p is bright and beautiful. The performance was great at first and is a little slower now because of the things I do now require a but more power. But over all this thing is a nice notebook even today.
The Dell XPS is a really great product for the price.

Excerpt: I bought my Dell XPS in February of this year and I have never had a problem with it. The only issue I have ever had with my XPS was when it caught a virus. That happened because I had inadequate virus protection. I have since purchased virus protection and have had no further issues. The graphic are great. My digital pictures look clear and, well, photo quality. I have no problem adding new hardware.
Excerpt: I'm very satisfied with my Dell Studio XPS 16 notebook computer. The only thing I don't like is the glossy surface, which attracts fingerprints like a magnet. All the technical features are great --- I love the slot-load DVD burner. I would definitely recommend this product. This is my fourth Dell laptop, and I don't plan to purchase another brand. Dell is the best!
Excerpt: I have had this Laptop for just under a year and it is Great! The speed, the quality of sound and picture is TOP OF THE LINE! Worth every single penny that i spent. It hooks very easy to my HD tv so I can watch Netflix.The picture quality is just like being in the movies. I also like how soft the butttons are on the keyboard. They don't stick and easy to clean and maintain.
Excerpt: I got my Dell Studio XPS 1645 about one month ago, and I LOVE IT! I have the Core 2 Duo processor, 1080P RGB LED Display, with leather accents. It is a really classy laptop, and I really love the design. It is extremely fast, and the display is second to none! Hooking up the studio xps to my 1080 50" LED flat panel produces a brilliant picture, and is a great way to watch DVD's and such. I use this laptop for about 8 hours a day and get decent battery life..
Excerpt: I have a Dell Studio, and I love it. I have had other computers thru the years, but I always go back to Dell. They back up their product with awesome customer service. If something doesn't work right, they will make it right, whether they need to send you another part or get tech support to help you.

Dell Studio XPS 16 - Great versitile gaming laptop
3 August 2011
Excerpt: "This is the best laptop that I have ever owned. It is fantastic at playing even high end games. I also is perfect for those wanting to use multiple programs at once as the processor is very capable. In my opinion the backlit keyboard is a great feature which allows work to be done in a dark environment, and also it looks fantastic! I specified mine with a 1080 screen and a blu ray player, something i haven't come to regret. The definition is fantastic ...
Summary: I seen 3 other staff using it and it seems they are the only ones never having anything to complained about their laptops! Whereas many other encountered the occasional woes using Adobe/AutoCad/Maya, I am really impressed at how reliable and fast the XPS 16 is.
Pros: It is regarded as a supreme workhorse in the office
