5 out of 5 eggsSlightly false advertising but still very pleased with this laptop

Pros: Overall a great laptop, especially for gaming and video editing. It's a little bulky but I still love the way it looks. The screen is bright with vibrant colors and impressive contrast. The speakers are the best I've heard on a laptop (which isn't saying much but they're better than you'd expect). As expected it is a fast and responsive machine and I haven't experienced any difficulty running several hardware intensive programs at a time.

Cons: This is more of a complaint to newegg. When I bought this machine the overview clearly stated that this laptop supported stereoscopic 3D and had 4 available slots for ram. Despite what was advertised and what at least one review stated, this machine does not have 4 ram slots, it has two and does not support 3D. According to Dell's tech support only laptops with a 1080p screen support 3D and have 4 slots for ram. The resolution on this laptop is 900p.

Other than that I am extremely happy with my new computer.

Other Thoughts: If you're looking for a reliable and (somewhat) affordable gaming laptop, I highly recommend this machine

5 out of 5 eggsGreat rig

Pros: Ordered from Dell and it is an outstanding gaming rig. It runs Battlefield 3 on all High settings fluidly. I'm sure Skyrim will be just as nice. It's quiet and runs cool even under load but I do use a cooling pad with a fan on it.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Looking for a desktop replacement gaming rig then you've found it. Extremely pleased with my purchase and would recommend it to anyone.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Item

Pros: Powerfull pc. To everyone who has a RAM problem, there are 4 ram slots. Please open your eyes.

Cons: My problem with the unit is it does run a little hot, with the fan on all the time. In colder months my wife jokes that she uses it as a had warmer.

Got a cooling pad just in case.

3 out of 5 eggsMixed Emotions

Pros: Nice, bright screen good sound, seems to have good vents and cooling fans, got a great, special deal w/ coupons, ($780) attractive, best shipping packaging I've ever seen. According to specs I can upgrade from 6 to 16 GB of RAM

Cons: Can't view the screen from an angle, ( I hate this new technology?) no manual volume control, difficult to communicate and get results with customer service & tech support, I was told there is no additional RAM to sell the customer? Advertised you can upgrade to 16 GB of RAM, some say only 8 on same machine. Driver Downloads and Support page very complexing and confusing and difficult to use.

Other Thoughts: It's a good thing that Dell makes a good product, because with the customer support I'm surprised they are still able to sell computers. It took about 11 contacts just to correct a missing software ordeal. I finally gave up on another request.

3 out of 5 eggsNo wireless-N w/o tweaks!

Pros: Overall, a pretty good laptop. Great dispaly, love the backlit keyboard, BD reader, good cpu performance. Holds 2 HDDs.

Cons: Only has room for 2 RAM sticks, not 4, so max RAM is 8, not 16. No room for 12.5mm HDD.

Wireless will only run at 54Mbps unless you configure the network (router) for WPA2-AES.

Other Thoughts: http://www.intel.com/support/wireless/wlan/4965agn/sb/cs-025643.htm

Wireless will only run at 54Mbps unless you configure the network (router) for WPA2-AES. The IEEE 802.11n spec calls for WPA-TKIP/WEP to run at 54Mbps.

Curious though, my other 2 PCs run fine at WPA2-TKIP.

This issue has caused me a LOT of headache and the solution was hard to find.

1 out of 5 eggsP-O-S!

Pros: Good enough display, has a BD ROM reader. Good battery life. Backlit keyboard is a real nice feature.

Cons: Can't get 16GB of DDR3 memory...8GB (2 slots) is max! Won't handle 12.5mm HDD!

When I got this a week or so ago, all seemed reasonably fine. I was connecting wirelessly at g speeds, because I had a WRT54G router. After I upgraded my router to the Linksys E3000 and configured it for N only operation, this laptop would not connect. I have an Asus netbook with N wireless that connected immediately after re-entering the pass phrase. Only when I reconfigured the E3000 to mixed mode N/G did this laptop connect! I tried everything I could think of to get it to work at N speeds, but no luck.

BTW, the E3000 has dd-wrt on it.

Other Thoughts: I called Dell's "tech support". Hah! What a joke! I gave them all the numbers on the PC that they asked for, except the Invoice number. I had to tell them twice that I bought it at Newegg, not Dell. Tech support transferred me to customer service, who then told me that my name doesn't match the name they have of the person who bought this laptop! They said I need to contact Newegg to get the name of the person who bought this PC from Dell! What sort of madness is this!!!

I paid for this to work at 150Mbps speeds and I DEMAND that I get what I paid for.

Don't get this model of the XPS17. Order direct from Dell and make sure you upgrade the N adapter or you may well find yourself where I am now.
