  • Excerpt: I had a dell XPS M170. The specs where pretty strong and it was truly a gaming machine. Yet its strongest hardware was its weakest point. The graphics card got burnt twice. I had it replaced on warranty but i still have some issue regarding the graphics card. Its temperature goes off the charts.

  • Excerpt: After buying this laptop i saw that there were alot of cheaper and better looking laptops on the market and almost regretted my decision. but after almost a year of this laptop i havnt had a single problem. it completes every task with in seconds even with several games and large programs stored on it it still refuses to slow down. the fact that i was able to build the laptop to suit my personal needs has proved invaluble in enjoying my laptop.
  • Pros: Dell, means it is built to your specifications
  • Cons: can be slighlty more expensive

Good for Professional Photographer

  • Excerpt: This laptop was bought for me by my husband when I set up a small business as an equestrian events photographer. It was chosen specifically for the amazing quality and resolution of the screen (so my photos look good), the size of the screen (so customers can see them well and then buy them) and speed so that large numbers of high resolution images can be downloaded quickly on to it.
  • Pros: Picture quality, screen size
  • Cons: Have to order from Dell

The DELL XPS M170 Gaming Laptop

  • Excerpt: You may have seen my review for the TOSHIBA Satellite Pro L10 only a few months back. It was a nice little laptop for £500, but it did not have the kind of power I craved for the latest gaming and multimedia applications. This is what I replaced it with..........the DELL XPS M170 Gaming Laptop.
  • Pros: NVIDIA 7800 GTX GPU, brilliant screen, exellent sound for a laptop, looks the part
  • Cons: Pricey

  • Excerpt: This is the daddy of gaming laptops. i havnt actually owned one, but someone i know has one and all i can say is that it rocks! Dell gives you a nice big 17 inch screen with some fancy truelife technology along with a nividia 6800 go graphics card that makes an eyewateringly good picture and graphics. They throw in an intel m 770 cpu (2.13Ghz) with a wireless network card so all u gamers can play games like battlefield 2 online, in the garden.
  • Pros: Very powerful gaming machine .  robust
  • Cons: quite expensive, customer service under par
