Dell XPS 17 (9730) review: power over portability


The XPS 17 9730 is a powerful laptop that can handle big computing tasks, but it is heavy and bulky

Large, clear 17-inch 4K screen ; Enough processing power to fill the big screen ; Can even play games solidly

Very heavy, bulky laptop ; Battery life is not great ; A bit noisy when working hard

The Dell XPS 17 (9730) is a big, beefy laptop with plenty of processing power. It is a large, heavy machine that might weigh you down, though. Not one for taking on the go, but it could be a genuine desktop replacement.

Dell XPS 17 (9730) Review


Superior all-around performance at its size ; Punchy graphics options ; Classic high-end design and metal build ; Beautiful 4K touch-display option ; Four Thunderbolt 4 ports, adapter for USB-A and HDMI included

Still only includes a disappointing 720p webcam ; Notably higher starting price than before ; Still no OLED screen option

The 2023 Dell XPS 17 brings back its tried-and-true, luxe design alongside 13th Gen Core silicon to serve demanding pro users an excellent desktop replacement that can do a little leisure on the side.

The 2023 Dell XPS 17 9730 and XPS 15 9530 have been holding strong as premiere Windows laptops, which continues into 2023.

Beautiful design, solid build quality ; The 4K displays are beautiful, though you can't go wrong with the 1080p version as well. If you're looking to save some money. ; Excellent performance with excellent hardware. The 17" will give better thermal...

720p webcam again ; Dell's design is still nice but a refresh next year would be nice ; Pricey but this is a premium laptop ; Heavy laptops, if you're looking for light...consider the XPS 13

The 2023 Dell XPS 17 and Dell XPS 15 are still the best premium Windows laptops you can buy. Their design and build quality are at the top. As I’ve mentioned, we hope that Dell is considering a refresh for 2024 because while this design is still great,...

pros ; Solid performance and build quality ; Punchy 17-inch UHD+ 4K display ; RTX 4070 offer high performance per watt

Dell XPS 17 (9730) review: A powerhouse for creatives but with strange limitations


A dream for creative projects and everyday tasks.

Elegantly slim design ; Amazing performance ; Decent gaming/creative capabilities ; Great 4K touchscreen ; Four Thunderbolt 4 ports

With its powerful performance, large display, and elegantly slim design the XPS 17 (9730) is the perfect laptop for creatives, work, or family use. However, there are a couple of limitations to be aware of.
