Power per pound

The Dell XPS M1730 is just over 10lbs of serious power.  It has a 17" 1920x1200 LCD, SLI, PhysX, it can handle RAID 0 or 1 as well as up to 4Gb of DDR2 800.  All in all it is serious competition for the Alienware m9750 that Ryan tested recently.  Check out the current pinnacle of laptop performance at AnandTech.

"We looked at WidowPC's Sting 512D2 a couple months ago, and the XPS M1730 is a case of one-upmanship in pretty much

every way. A single 8800M GTX is very fast when it comes to mobile graphics performance... so why not have two paired

together in SLI? Core 2 Duo T7600 is a fast mobile CPU, but how about increasing the clock speed and cache a bit more and

moving to Intel's latest Penryn architecture, courtesy of the overclockable X9000? You can also get two hard drives in

RAID 0 (or RAID 1 if you prefer data integrity to performance), a brighter LCD, a better keyboard layout, and a few

miscellaneous odds and ends like the configurable glowing LEDs that light up the chassis."
