MobileMark 2002 utilizes the following applications:

  • Microsoft Excel 2002
  • Microsoft PowerPoint 2002
  • Microsoft Outlook 2002
  • Netscape Communicator 6.0
  • McAfee VirusScan 5.13
  • Adobe Photoshop 6.0.1
  • Macromedia Flash 5
  • WinZip 8.0

Equipped with a 9-cell Lithium battery and a number of power-saving features and functionality, the XPS M1710 is able to turn in an exceptional score for a desktop replacement notebook. Regardless of class, Dell's latest flagship system is able to walk away with the highest overall score of the field. Somewhat ironically, the second place system is none other than the previous generation Dell XPS system the M1710 replaces.

With a total run time which surpasses the two hour mark, the Dell XPS M1710 is remarkably capable on the road for a flagship desktop replacement system. Again, this is directly attributed to the large 9-cell battery and wealth of efficiency features on each core component such as the CPU and GPU. Here, it is worth nothing that Dell has managed to increase performance and overall battery life with their latest generation of their popular XPS line of notebooks.
