Today on HotHardware we’ve got a quick-take spotlight video for you on Dell’s hot XPS M1730 Gaming Notebook...

Synopsis: Dell's XPS M1730 is a powerful Desktop Replacement notebook designed with the performance enthusiast in mind. Sleek styling and custom lighting adorn this beastly, semi-portable machine that weighs in at well over 10lbs. Gaming and multimedia performance with the M1730 is top notch, with frame rates across its beautiful 17" 1920X1200 LCD holding strong in even the most demanding games and HD content. Though it's not cheap, the Dell XPS M1730 offers great performance, fantastic build quality and eye-catching good looks.

 Guys, I have been around computers and HH site for a long time and I have to say the video showcase is the best thing you guys have done in a Long time and I love it.   The intro to HH video made me laugh with all of the movie clips throw in it was great.

Gents, 

Thanks for the kind words.  I'm glad you like the new section.   We're still working on a few tweaks to it, mostly for presentation and layout but we'll continue to keep bringing out the new content as well.

Thanks again for all your support.

Great addition. Very well done. Kudos.

It's been awhile since I was excited by a Dell product but.... I want one! And is it me or does the LCD software for time/resourses etc look a LOT like the one in the logitech G15 keyboard. Did Dell License it or something?

I used to carry a hammer in my computer tool kit. Just for fixing the packard Bells though.......

Why do I always miss the beer and Recovering why do you wait until I am gone to break it out? Inquiring minds want to know and I want my beer!

It is a well-done video indeed Dave.....i got very excited about the laptop indeed and its cool to be able to visually see various features.

Keep 'em comin!!

P.S. What would you say about making a multi-part  video guide with this new-found tech? LIke an updated OCers guide or something of the sort.....
