Dell Studio s1745-3691MBU review: Dell Studio s1745-3691MBU

Review Sections

A huge desktop replacement is never the longest running laptop, but with that said, the Dell Studio 1745 turned in a fair showing on CNET Labs' demanding video-playback battery drain test. Using only a standard six-cell battery, the Studio 1745 ran for 3 hours 15 minutes, surpassing the time the HP Pavilion dv7-3065dx lasted on the test, despite the HP using a larger eight-cell battery.

Dell backs the Studio 1745-3691 with a standard one-year parts-and-labor warranty. Calls to tech support are toll-free and available 24-7. Dell's support pages contain an extensive knowledge base, user manuals, and driver downloads.
