The SSD Update: Vertex Gets Faster, New Indilinx Drives and Intel/MacBook Problems Resolved

AnandTech
30 March 2009
  • Conclusion: My recommendation still stands: the Intel X25-M is by far the cream of the crop of the desktop SSD world. The Indilinx based drives have the potential to be good, lower cost alternatives to the Intel drive but you still have to approach them with caution. While the OCZ Vertex drive worked fine in my tests and on my testbed, this is a brand new drive with a controller from a company without a proven track record.

Dell XPS M1710 Notebook Review - Overclocked T7600G

PC Perspective
9 July 2007
  • Excerpt: Almost one year ago we reviewed the Dell XPS M1710 gaming notebook. The model we reviewed back then was a great example of good design, features, and price. While you can certainly buy more expensive and faster performing mobile Windows game systems out there, the XPS M1710 struck a nice balance.

Dell XPS M1710 Review

HardwareCentral
9 February 2007
  • Conclusion: As a desktop-replacement heavyweight, the Dell is much more likely to be carried from one AC outlet to another than perched on an airplane tray table. Even so, its 9-cell lithium-ion battery performed adequately: Depending on how disk-intensive and multimedia-oriented they were, our combined office-productivity and playtime sessions lasted from two and a quarter to two and a half hours. A spare battery pack is a $99 option.

  • Excerpt: Dell has been trying to show the public that notebooks are no longer slow or boring with their XPS-series.

Is Dell's XPS M1710 The Fastest Graphics Notebook Ever? Part II

Tom's Guide
1 May 2006
  • Summary: So, bottom line, is the Dell XPS M1710 the fastest graphics notebook ever? It's certainly the fastest we've tested, but, we don't think it's the fastest ever. We're anxious to test notebooks with SLI-based graphics solutions, such as those from Widow PC and Eurocom. Based on our findings with desktop SLI cards, we would expect that SLI will add 30% to gaming performance and 60% higher resolutions, but that remains to be seen.

Is Dell's XPS M1710 The Fastest Graphics Notebook Ever? Part I

Tom's Guide
18 April 2006
  • Summary: Editor's Note: These are tentative conclusions. I will finalize my conclusions in Part II to be published on Thursday April 27th. Dell's XPS M1710 is quite a computer. Its cool design points include a metallic red or black top, a lighted mouse touchpad and changeable lights at various places around the notebook. But, the XPS M1710 is not just another cool notebook.
