  • Excerpt: This is a 43 cm high-performance gaming notebook which is based on the Intel Santa Rosa platform and comes loaded with an Intel Core 2 Extreme X790 processor and Dual 200GB 7200RPM Hitachi drives. At 4.8 kg in weight and 5cm in thickness it is heavier and bulkier than standard notebooks, partly because of its solid chassis.

  • Conclusion: As gamers and enthusiasts, we have to say the M1730 pushes all the right buttons. Its combination of performance, custom lighting and useful features make it a wholly impressive machine with very few faults. We can nitpick here and there but Dell has done a fantastic job with the M1730. The only feature that really bothered us was the small touchpad, but its accuracy is excellent.
  • Pros: Very good performance; lots of useful features; cool lights
  • Cons: Small touchpad; overclocking makes fans loud

  • Summary: Although you're paying a price nearing the £2,000 mark, you get a machine offering top performance in return. The Dell XPS M1730 is definitely for the more serious laptop users and gamers out there, and it would be a good desktop-replacement thanks to its cracking display. Although the Dell XPS M1730 is bulky and we are a little disheartened by the battery life we were wowed by the high games and WorldBench scores and impressive hard drive capacity.
