The times are gone when people used to carry nameless, gray colored, faceless notebooks that lost in the organization. Since the demand for attractive and efficient notebooks is in, Dell has been coming out with exceptionally cool gizmos. Lately, it announced the launch of Dell Studio 17, a very highly configured and quickly customizable notebook.
First of all, its size is huge and can be called as a desktop replacement, because we can't demand people to bring such notebooks during their traveling through an airline or when they have to move from place to place. It's more like having it in one place most of the times. The looks are same as XPS M1530. It looks as if dell just brushed up the aluminum parts and offered some options to customize the look. whats the end result? a good looking stylish desktop replacer! The thing that studio 17 lacks is mobility. Most of the body is like the XPS m1530 like slot-loading optical drive, the wedge-shaped profile, drop hinge and touch sensitive media button. well, it has more in store than just the design. The colors are awesome like Plum Purple, Tangerine Orange, Midnight Blue, Ruby Red, Flamingo Pink, Spring Green or standard Jet Black. The only thing that doesn't seem so good with this notebook is its bottom panel. Rather of providing part panel covers for each part, it provides one huge bottom panel.
This arrives with several options from dell like a WUXGA (1920 X 1200) glossy display, a WXGA (1440 x 900) glossy display or a WXGA LED (1440 x 900) glossy display. Our review team came up with a 1920x1200 display and that seems cool. It should view even better with a Blu-ray drive. The displays look good from all angles. The best is the horizontal view, of course apart from the frontal view. The upper view is also good enough, however, the lower view saw some colors getting dim and invert.
The keys have excellent travel and cushion. All the keys give you the good experience. however, small flex was observed on the key for letter K., Of course, i should say this is one of the best keyboards used in the 17-inch environment. Women may complain using this keyboard since if you got imperceptibly longer nails, they become stuck between the keys. It also has the keypad lighting to type in the dark. Mouse gets a lot of clicking sound when touched, though cushioning is good. The touchpad is, as usual, nothing much to say in a notebook of this size.
Rear of the notebook has nothing, absolutely no ports. There is in the port of IR in the front. On the Left side, you noticed WiFi on/off, security lock slot, WiFi catcher/locator, VGA, HDMI, two USB, powered USB port, Ethernet, Firewire, ExpressCard slot, 8-in-1 memory card reader. On the right side, you have Two headphone jacks, slot-loading optical drive, microphone jack, two USB, power jack, power button.
Dell studio 17 has one of the greatest speakers than the traditional notebooks have. However, it is only acceptable among the 17-inch category. Fine if you are not so related to audio, then these are more than enough.
The 9-cell lithium-ion battery gives excellent battery life to the notebook.
No lugs/screw posts for VGA cable & no docking station connector, All-in-one system access cover on the bottom of the notebook is either frustrating or great, No option for excellent graphics than ATI Radeon HD 3650 at this time.
Beautiful design, Solid selection of available configurations, Reasonable battery life, touchpad, Nice keyboard and media buttons, Great component layout, Dell Dock is a nice feature, Good value for the price. More information about Dell Laptop Speaker @Dell Service Center in Chepauk.
