Sibling Rivalry: Dell XPS M1730 vs. Alienware Area-51 m9750


The Area-51 m9750 slaughters the XPS M1730 in F.E.A.R., but look at the odd results: The XPS M1730 appears to be processor-bound, even though its processor is substantially faster than the m9750’s CPU. Only Dell knows why.

With Anti-Aliasing and Anisotropic Filtering enabled, F.E.A.R. slaughters Dell’s XPS M1730. The game is barely playable at the panel’s native resolution.

    Dell XPS's are nice, but to be fair the application performance is irrelevant. The huge cost of these are only justified by the gaming performance.

    In this the Low Res gaming, doesn't matter a toss either. Alienware probably have better build quality. Do you notice as well that only the dell got the look inside and out. Biased article. If you have a choice never buy dell.

    I don't understand why you would bench compare the two machines with two different operating systems. This make the whole comparision between them very inaccurate.
    At least use the same os configuration if you want to compare benchmarks between the two.

    A very unprofessional article.
