    That looks mighterly impressive, but lord almighty knows how much we'll get charged for buying here in the UK! . As an owner of a 1737 (model before the one being released) i don't half love it, good build quality, good looks and an all round well performing machine makes it a very good purchase for a good spec'd laptop!

    Got two Studio 15s arriving tomorrow. One for my daughter and the other for my wife, both Christmas presents.

    Must admit that I looked at the Studio 17 but in the end, decided that the 15.6" screen was big enough and for same money prefererred the better graphics card and the extra 2GB ram.

    Cheers,

    Nigel

    "...and like almost every other laptop out there sports integrated 802.11g WiFi, ports for USB 2.0, a USB/eSATA combo, HDMI connectivity, DisplayPort..."

    Actually not very many laptops do come with eSATA or DisplayPort and until recently quite a few lacked HDMI so I think this statement is false. These feature are a big deal to me personally and I'd rather have them than blu-ray for example. That's just me but my point the language used is misleading vs real life experience of these matters.

    Re: News - Dell's Studio 17 notebook gets multitouch

    To be fair on Dell the pricing on these machines is actually really, really good. On the Studio XPS 16 I spec'd one up with an i7 720, a Radeon 4650 and 4GB of RAMs and it came to little over £1,200. Granted, the same sum of money won't buy a Studio 17 of quite the same spec, thanks to the cost of multitouch and the bigger screen, but it'll still get you a really competetive machine.

    Still erring toward a Sony VAIO though, but that's just down to me trusting the brand. I actually would bet my first-born son on a VAIO outlasting my need for it =D
