STUDIO 17 No longer supported; WIndows 7 not offered!

Dell has abandonded the Studio 17. No Windows 7 support offered!

One unhappy customer.

Of course as is usual with DELL Windows 7 does work on Studio 17.

While I can understand your fustration Dell has and does routinely drop systems. The normal life cycle of a system is 12 to 18 months. Mostly towards the lower.  It will remain to see if they provide any drivers for win 7 on that system, or many of the current models still in production.

You will still need to purchase a copy of Win 7 anyways.

How can it drop their system and still show it for sale on their website?  I don't see any indication that it is being discontinued.

From the sound of it, the Studio 17 may be replaced before Windows 7 arrives - and it may be MS is requiring that only current-shipping systems as of late October have the option for the upgrade.
