    This could stand as a really good example of a bad post. First the title. All capital letters is the same as shouting. It is rude. All those question marks don't make people want to answer your question either. One is enough! And "What title said" in SHOUTING CAPITAL LETTERS is so rude. It's like you're shouting at your dog. So I won't be answering, even though I do know the answer.

    Mon seul conseil, précieux ou non, est simplement dit : Dell jamais! Donc je te conseille de penser à l'Asus.

    For those of you interested in the conversation, but have been shut out because we don't use two languages.


    Dell? You're joking right?

    Grokki: I need your valuable advice

    Indochine: My only advice, valuable or not, is simply said: Dell never! Thus I advise you to think of Asus.

    He's gotta be! I would never buy a Dell! They are often terribly incompatible hardware-wise, and they are often poor value for money. Many have non standard motherboard/PSU wiring which locks you into Dell if you need spares, (and gives you a nasty and expensive surprise if you try to fit ordinary parts!) and Dell spares are expensive.

    At last I checked, but then again it really depends on what you have put in it....the XPS 710, uses old (last year, three years ago) parts.

    7950x2 video cards, 4 x 40GB hard drives in RAID 0....(for example)

    All old stuff...if you're going for something new, build it yourself...besides, anything you buy from an OEM dealer starts off with an OEM motherboard....and it's all downhill from there.

    Powerful? It's a computer not a sports car.

    From 2 reviews

    The G2P [...] in my opinion is for those people who are looking for a moderate gaming desktop replacement.

    The reason to buy the Dell M1710 is for gaming performance. In that area, this notebook will deliver the most power of any notebook short of a high-end SLI dual graphics card setup. (Written in April 2006)

    My bad for not payin' attention to the models we're talking about.

    Yes...it's possible for you to build your own laptop....even from the ground up. Case, all the hardware...you name it. It's not as easy as building a tower...

    Most OEM dealers only allow you to configure a laptop's specs depending on what's available for that model. You can define the size of the hard drive, the video card...amount of memory and so on. Choosing the motherboard....well, that's model dependent and not available as an option. Unlike a server or midcase tower, a laptop is confined by space...so it's options and upgrades are limited.

    But yes....you can build your own.

    Here's one of many sites that have information on it.
