Excerpt: Gaming laptops are a peculiar breed. Due to their intensive hardware requirements, they are virtually outdated before they are released. So enthusiasts and wealthy shoppers tend to shy away from mainstream solutions, and instead opt for products from Alienware, VodooPC or other boutique manufacturers that offer hybrid SLI-enabled laptops with impressive specs and inflated price tags that often top Rs 3 lakh. What does this leave for the normal consumer?
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
