As I’ll explain in a later post, my e1705 died under warranty. It was the hottest e1705 you could buy at the time (7900GS, 2GB Core2Duo 2.2GHz) so Dell quickly replaced it with an unbelievably hot XPS M1730 (2x 8700, 2.8GHz Extreme, 4GB.) That was too much machine for me so I switched and bought a late 2008 aluminum Macbook Pro 2.53GHz. Here are some pictures of the machines together.
Here’s the M1730 and e1705 side by side:
