Good: good looking notebook, powerfull
Bad: i havnt use it yet
Comment: well i have placed an order for XPS M170 on 27th January 2006. And im sitll in waiting list. I order via phone and the lady said that i should recieve my notebook before 6th febuary and today is 30th january.
The specification of my laptop is:
Pentium M 780 (2.26Ghz)
Geforce Go 7800 GTX GPU
Windows XP Media Center Edition with remorte control and TV Card
3 Years Next Business Day Service Plan
The face value of all stuff was POUND 2243. But i was lucky cus i got 480 pounds discount. So i pay 1953 pounds in totle. Well im a serious game lover. This pc is perfect as i come to know from many many reviews at lots of web site. well personly i have never use it before. I will update my opinion as i recieve my order.
Good: Display rocks (duh), quiet, looks cool.
Bad: Keyboard is 3/4 size but doesn't need to be.
Comment: Make the keyboard full size, people. And my original laptop came with a badly-scratched cover. Called Dell (paid extra for the Fast Lane tech support, bad move, it's still S_L_O_W), they sent another one in 10 days. This one was scratched too. Currently waiting for the 3rd one. Good news: haven't paid a penny yet. Not going to either until they get it right. HOURS on the phone trying to work it out. Runaround runaround runaround. Indian guys calling themselves "Jeff" (riiiiiiight) putting me on hold forever, transferring me to more and more people so I can hold with them.
Summary: great computer, expensive, lousy support.
Good: Speed, screen size and quality.
Bad: It weighs a lot... about 10lbs, which is the only negative thing about it.
Comment: Definitely don't regret buying it. It's a work horse that performs just as well as my P4 desktop. But if you're looking for a thin, easy to manipulate notebook, you may have to look elsewhere.
