Summary: My first M1730 had the screen die and for $400 i could get a new screen, then id have to install it, not something I wanted to do. for the same price i was able to get this M1730. only thing is it wasn't a sapphire blue but a Red one with more memory.
Summary: Absolutely phenomenal laptop!! I cannot say enough good things about this monster! Blazing fast, ultra cool looking, very solid construction and materials. Doesn't show fingerprints or get dirty easily. SLI is absolutely fantastic, fans aren't annoyingly loud even at full speed.
Summary: Just to inform any buyers of this laptop, this is not a gaming laptop. Dell has two branches of other computers. There gaming laptops are Alien ware and their high performance is XPS. XPS will not have as good graphics cards or Ram.
Summary: This is a great laptop! I have had mine for about a year now, no problems with anything, the only bad thing is the weight of the laptop and the size of its ac adapter, but that doesn't bother me but might be a hassle to others...besides that great and i would reccomend this.
