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. Logitech LCD screen is awesome, ultra high resolution screen, etc. etc. etc. If you like to game and like awesomeness then this is definitely something you want.
Excerpt: It weighs a ton, but delivers. Lived up to all the benchmarks. The backlighting and side lights are kinda neat, but not really necessary. I use the webcam a lot and the microphone that is built in could be located somewhere closer, but all and all it delivers for high end gaming. The only complaint i have is the power supply is ridiculously big and bulky.
Excerpt: I am not the computer savvy person for sure, and when my husband bought the Dell XPS M1730 Laptop, I thought he was out of his mind for paying so much for a laptop. So far, there hasn't been a game we couldn't run on it, and although I am not the gamer, my husband is.

Excerpt: I think the Dell XPS M1730 Laptop is just awesome! I like the speed and the ease of use. It also seems to have alot or power and the video on it is wonderful! I had heard that this laptop came highly recommended, so I have tried it and boy was I surprised! It is not too heavy and yet the screen size was perfect. The cost is a little high but if I had the money right now, I would get one for myself. Reviewer is an employee or otherwise affiliated with the brand.
Excerpt: The Dell XPS 1730...a monster of a laptop, or rather a desktop replacement. Yes, it will run from it's battery, but not for long and not as fast. To start with, it has a 230 watt power supply, so right out of the bos you know it's not your dad's laptop. With it's 17" screen, full keyboard, dual video GPU, dual harddrive bay, you only need one but you can have a second drive for either more storage or raid, throw in 4 GB of ram, WiFi and bluetooth, blu ray drive and tv...
