Dell Studio 17 (2010)

 

The Dell Studio 17 1747 is a hefty beast. You'll want to use it as a desktop replacement rather than a portable to carry around with you. Still, the glossy black case with subtle patterning and red edging looks pretty neat, so it won't be out of place...

Great-looking screen, responsive and fast computer chip, neat extra features and good battery life

Disappointing and occasionally unresponsive touchscreen, occasional lapses in styling

This is an effective desktop replacement with a glorious big, high-resolution screen and good sound capabilities. It works fast and efficiently. In fact, the only part of the package that doesn't impress entirely is the touchscreen. It's not bad,...

Dell Studio 17 review

 

The Studio 17 boasts a screen with ‘four-point multitouch'. Shame no-one's made a program to use it yet …

The state of the art screen may be a little before its time, but this is an excellent desktop replacement regardless

Dell Studio 17 notebook

 

Dell has always had clear lines between its product ranges, such as Inspiron for consumers and Latitude for business. Now, we have the Studio line, which sits awkwardly between Inspiron and XPS and even overlaps some segments. The Dell Studio 17 may...

Great spec, good price, powerful

Standard finish, awkward design

The Dell Studio 17 may fall between the budget Inspiron and expensive XPS ranges but we found it a great middle ground for those with a bigger budget looking for something cutting-edge without necessarily paying a premium.

Powerful performance and sound from this quad-core multimedia machine

Core i7 processor ; 3D performance ; Integrated subwoofer

Dell Studio 17 review

 

Plentiful screen estate and terrific performance highlight the Dell Studio 17 desktop-replacement laptop.

The Dell Studio 17 is a solid laptop and ships in a variety of configurations starting at £599. Stock, it's a sedately handsome portable, but you can order it with a graphic or with a brighter colour on the lid to set your laptop apart from the crowd.

Dell Studio 17 review

 

Dell's Studio 17 is the cheapest desktop-replacement laptop here at just under £900, but it looks more expensive thanks to its decorated lid.

Dell Studio 17 touchscreen notebook

 

A 17in quad-core notebook with a suitably large touchscreen display.

Dell’s done well to bundle some fast components with a 17.3in screen while keeping everything tantalisingly close to the £1000 mark. And although I’m not sold on the idea of touchscreen laptops, the fact Dell isn’t charging a huge premium for it means...

Dell Studio 17 Laptop Review (Multi-Touch Screen)

 

Recently, the people at Dell have been doing a few swanky things that have grabbed my attention. From their 3D gaming technology to their new teeny-tiny Alienware M11x laptop that has a motherboard so powerful it'll make playing with Robocop seem like...

Dell Studio 17 touchscreen laptop review

 

Wired magazine tested multi-touch PCs in the February issue, but this is the first laptop with a multi-touch screen we've seen.

Fast and games-capable. Good value

Colours washed out at bottom of screen. Spongy keyboard
