Portability isn’t its strong suit but, if you want to play cutting-edge games on a 4kg slab of notebook heaven, Dell’s XPS is the obvious choice.
A bleeding-edge 256MB nVidia Geforce Go 6800 Ultra shifts polygons at breakneck pace – sample Test Drive Unlimited on the XPS and you’ll see what we mean.
There’s just the one bad point: its sheer size. The 17-inch screen is pin-sharp perfection but it adds such bulk to the XPS, along with its hefty, powerful innards, that you’ll be lucky to find a decent case in which to carry it around.
Don’t go too far, either, or you’ll be risking a regular visit to the chiropractor.
