Dell’s completely revampled Inspirion 1720 desktop replacement has a fabulous
configuration (see specs box). With 4 GB RAM, two 250 GB hard drives, NVIDIA
8600M GT based graphics, and even a Blue-ray drive, it’s truly a mean machine
for power users. Its overall multimedia experience was enthralling. There’s a
DirectMedia Button to instantly access DVD movies, music, photo slide-shows, and
videos, all with a pair of good speakers.

One obviously expects it to outperform all players in the league with such a
configuration. In 3D Mark06 however, it beat Lenovo T61p’s (also reviewed in
this issue) score of 1606, with a score of 2730, clearly showing its gaming
supremacy. In PC Mark05, it scored 3626, which is high, but lower than T61p’s
score of 4751.

In Battery Mark4, it gave a battery backup of around 4 hours and 15 min,
which is 30 min more than the T61p.

Bottomline: It’s a lucrative option for
power users, if they’re willing to pay the price.
