With the screen upgrade at only £56, it's getting pretty close to the spec of my precision M4600, for a lot less money - hot !!!
hot, excellent price for its specifications

Would you mind just making the title a bit clearer and put the XPS 17 at the front?

Decent processor and graphics card, but the 1600x900 screen is crap, add the 1080p screen option.

its an extra £71 actually, miscalculated!
No ssd? Looks a really good specification laptop still.
5th Best CPU on Passmark for CPUs! Very good spec, add the screen for an excellent laptop.

Makes me wish my XPS15 would hurry up and die :)
Ordered one of these with the upgrade screen and backlit keyboard and bluetooth.

Would have got it slightly cheaper if I had waited.

*sigh* if I only had the money
Does anyone know what these are like for temperature management, there is a lot of hot stuff going on under those keys.
Is the screen on this non glare and are they quick at delivering at Dell? Why could it have been dropped in price so much?
What kind of games/res would this GPU/rig play games at? Eg bf3? :P

No idea. But imagine it should be pretty good. I doubt you will find better for the money
hot!! Sadly will page will not let me customise the machine, is just hanging :/

This spec will do extremely well at running all games on the market on high settings I'd imagine, though I have heard that the graphics card isn't as powerful as it sounds.

This spec will blitz any game on the market on ultra, no problems. My computer is half this spec and plays BF3 on high setting easily.

No it wont play any game on ultra.

I've got the same model with the i7-2630qm instead of 2670, great laptop, can play skyrim on maxed setting well, however the screen is shocking, it's so dull and if I ever play a game I connect it to my TV.

Other than that no complaints, still smooth as silk, just a little ugly.

+1, and not the first time for a Dell config link!
Great price for the spec but pay for a long warranty these gaming laptop run hot and have poor reliability

Great laptop. Put in a new Sata 3 SSD and it is just brilliant.

As for games - don't expect to put on 1080p max settings for BF3 and Skyrim and get a good experience - you'll be disappointed. It's a competent gaming machine though and does well with high settings at lower resolutions. I prefer to play BF3 on low settings at 1080p, but I prefer to play Skyrim at lower resolution on High.

Long session gaming you WILL get very high temperatures and maybe an occasional overheating BSOD. For some reason the stock temps are awful with GPU being maxed out. From what I understand to get the best of it you need to re-paste the heatsinks with Arctic Silver or the like. Some have done mods to the heat flow
would this be good to program with only, i dont game, how long battery to just program?
wish it had blue ray
Anyone else having problems changing the spec? Its very laggy for me

It plays most games on Ultra and just need to drop it down a bit for some of the high graph games such as Crisis etc.

Hot air flies out of this machine but temps inside stay in the 60's-70's touching the 80's when intense gaming.

If you compare reliability against the amount of these Dell have sold then the figures are very good and to be honest apart from the odd moan Dell generally replace nice and quick or send out technicians within a few days.

All round multimedia beauty with amazing sound. Never thought i would enjoy listening to music on a laptop but with this you can.

Finally 1600x900 screen is not the greatest but it is not as bad as some say. Now the upgrade on the screen is cheaper than before it is definitely worth paying the extra for though.
I paid £500 for a new laptop a year ago, which had a really high spec and I thought it still kicked ass - until my brother bought one of these a few weeks ago. That's an amazing spec, with a graphics card that beats my desktop one (and I only upgraded in July...), for a very good price. Still going to stick to gaming on a desktop, but having a fast laptop for the occasional game-in-front-of-the-TV never hurt anyone!
Do you need this exact spec to get this price as its showin £1,026.99 for me when i complete customisation.

just wish i could buy it :s
If I'm not mistaken with the 3gb Graphics card you have 4 DIMM slots, making the maximum capacity 16gb Ram

Definately have to second realblenders comment, wouldn't consider this without the screen upgrade. The standard screen is totally unacceptable to me (though I am very picky with visuals) and dells high end screens are actually very nice.

Wish this hadn't came so close to Christmas/payday :( Would have loved it!

BTW to anyone doubting Dell's reliability, I'm using a 6 year old dell laptop to write this and it's absolutely fine (except for the battery, obviously)

"would this be good to program with only, i dont game, how long battery to just program?"

You are taking the p aren't you? Programming takes about as much cpu power as browsing! This is a quad core pretty much top of the range laptop! Battery lasts about 3hrs...

basic price showing at £799... just me?
Website is running like a dog
£799 yes... and can't advance through the config!
Website works better if you go and go to the XPS laptops section, click the 17" and then the machine that starts £799, dont customise anything except the monitor for £90 to the 1080p version.

Have just purchased mine.... My wife is going to hate it!
Can't get the website to do anything, but if anyone gets to the GPU options and there's a cheaper 1.5GB GT555M, I'd personally go for this (if there is a moderate price difference);

The 3GB 555 was a bit of a gimmick / money maker, that much VRAM is more than most will ever require!
