    Very good user reviews on Amazon
    Bad user reviews on Newegg
    Most powerful processor available
    Large amount of memory sufficient for memory intensive applications
    Uses conventional harddrive. Higher power consumption, lower shock resistance and longer startup time compared to solid state drive(SSD).
    Battery life is unknown.
    Medium GPU allows playing most demanding games, but only at low detail settings and resolution, and less demanding games (WoW, Sims3, etc) at high settings and resolution
    GPU is not suitable for latest, demanding games (Assassin's creed, Black Ops 2, etc) at high or medium detail settings and resolution
    17.3" screen suitable as desktop replacement and gaming; not ideal for portability
    Economy display with resolution of 1600 x 900; screen space sufficient for most purposes but less than ideal for graphics design, programming etc
    Built in CD/DVD drive; allows watching movies and software installation from CD/DVD
    Integrated webcam for video chatting
    Processor is more powerful than necessary for typical tasks such as multi-tasking, internet, music, movies, productivity(Word, Spreadsheets, etc), basic photo and video editing. Could downgrade to save money

    Installation into my Dell 17R SE (7720) was a breeze. parts-people.com has loads of great Dell repair videos on youtube. Replacement of the bezel that came with the drive for my laptop's non-standar... Find "how to install" video on line as the directions that came with it were incomplete and poor. Nevertheless I gave it 5 stars because it was a great price, easily installed and does what I wanted.... better then i hoped... Works great...
