Dell Inspiron 1720 laptop

 

Dell hasn't refreshed its consumer notebook line for close to two years, so the introduction of the 1720 is something of a welcome surprise. There are two models in the new line with this being the larger version with a 17-inch Super-TFT panel – the...

Great price, powerful, great build quality

Lid colour looks cheap, poor battery life

Dell may no longer be the Number One choice when it comes to notebooks but the Inspiron 1720 is a great piece of kit that will go some way to restoring the good name of the Inspiron brand name.

Dell Vostro 1720 notebook

 

A well-built, 17in Dell notebook with a high-definition screen

High-definition screen, hard drive encryption, comfortable keyboard

Poor graphics performance, no digital video output, no eSATA

The Dell Vostro 1720 is a well-rounded machine and should suit any business user who wants large notebook with a high resolution display instead of a space-hogging PC and monitor setup. Don't bank on it for good 3D graphics performance though.

Dell Inspiron 1720

 

Get an unwired and supercharged desktop-replacement laptop with the Dell Inspiron 1720.

Very good performance scores. 1,920-by-1,200 resolution option. Dual hard drive option for capacities up to 500GB. Mobile broadband from either Cingular, Sprint, or Verizon. Choice of eight colors.

Blu-ray drive option without an HDMI or DVI-D port. Heavier than the Dell Inspiron E1705 (Vista).

Dell Inspiron 1720 Notebook - Customizable

 

A powerful laptop does not have to be a boring laptop. Take Dell's Inspiron 1720, a robust system that also happens to be available in seven colors besides black. The 1720 is a heavyish 17-inch notebook, but its multimedia design is outstanding.

Dual hard drives option ; Fast 3D gaming

Pricey

Perfect for gadget lovers, this splashily designed unit offers excellent entertainment options and rich-sounding speakers.
