Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Next generation components help to make this machine (currently at time of writing) one of the most powerful laptops ever produced.

The case is very sturdily built, with good keyboard. It is not as good as an HP Envy 17, but that machine does not even come close in the power stakes. Otherwise I would be writing a review for the HP Envy.
Very good sound(for a laptop)
Screen is very good quality if you choose the 1920 x 1080 HD screen option.
Has plenty of room for expansion, but only if you get the big screen option...weirdly enough.

After configuring the machine very carefully on DELL's site and taking only the big screen option, no Bluray, back lit keyboard or extra RAM or other gimicky extras, and after taking the coupon discount option, this machine is very good value for money in comparison to others.

TIP: Power laptops like this can run quite hot when playing games. Get a laptop cooler! I got a ZALMAN NC2000 and it is one of the best computer related products I have ever bought. Fits the DELL XPS 17 exactly. Perfect.
Bad points:
Speakers are under your left hand as you use the standard WASD gaming keys, giving a right biased sound.

Large battery protrudes at the bottom creating a little stand. I suppose it creates a better position for typing.

The plasticky frame around the screen is a bit tacky and flimsy. The rest of the quality is 'top notch'
