Dell XPS 17 review: A mobile workstation in disguise

 

Need a large, 17-inch laptop with fantastic performance? The Dell XPS 17 is in a league of its own.

“The Dell XPS 17 is unrivaled in extra large, powerful laptops.”

Dell XPS 17 (9710) Review

 

Elegant design ; Gorgeous 17-inch 4K touch screen ; Available Nvidia GeForce RTX graphics ; Large touchpad ; Four Thunderbolt 4 ports

Pricey as configured ; Shorter battery life than expected ; No USB Type-A ports

Well-equipped (as it should be for nearly $3,000), the Dell XPS 17 is the standard-bearer for non-gaming 17-inch laptops.

Dell XPS 17 review: The ultimate content creation laptop

 

The Dell XPS 17 9710 packs in an Intel 11th-gen CPU, Nvidia RTX graphics, and a giant screen to offer the ultimate content creation experience.

Huge 17-inch screen in a relatively compact laptop ; Intel's newest 11th gen CPU and Nvidia RTX graphics

No USB-A port and no Gigabit Ethernet ; Hybrid charging likely sacrifices a little performance

We can understand why some people don’t quite get why the XPS 17 even exist. It’s arguably a “niche” laptop that’s easily outperformed by 17.3-inch gaming laptops and on the face of it, it’s “only” one-inch larger than 16-inch laptops.

Review: Dell XPS 17 9710's refresh for 2021 makes it ridiculously powerful

 

The XPS 17 9710 is truly one of a kind with its giant 17-inch 16:10 UHD touch screen, 8-core processor, and NVIDIA RTX 3060 graphics. It's the best non-gaming 17-inch laptop that is ideal for anyone who works professionally with video, music,...

17-inch 16:10 HDR400 display is gobsmacking delightful ; Excellent keyboard, trackpad ; Powerful quad audio ; Octa-core CPU and RTX-level graphics ; Looks fantastic, feels great

Heavy and dense ; Below average web camera; IR is finicky ; No inking
