Dell Precision M4600 review: Dell Precision M4600

 

Dell Precision M4600

The ; is a flexible and powerful mobile workstation thanks to an abundant component selection, plentiful ports and connections, and ample warranty, support, and security options.

Judging from our Dell M4600 review system, quality control is a little lacking.

If you've got the money--and a strong back--the Dell Precision M4600 is a very good mobile workstation.

Dell Precision M4600 Review: Mobile Workstation Muscle

 

The 15-inch Dell Precision M4600 goes far beyond your typical business notebook. This impressively durable powerhouse is available with just about every high-end component you can imagine ... but is it worth more than $4,000? Keep reading to find out.

Great 1080p IPS display option ; Plenty of ports ; Extreme performance

Poor battery life ; Thick and heavy ; Weak backlit keyboard ; Expensive if heavily customized ; The Dell Precision M4600 is one of the most powerful 15-inch mobile workstations available. Just be ready for high costs if you customize it.

Review Dell Precision M4600 Notebook

 

Precision tool. The current 15" workstation from Dell has been re

Robust case; Very good battery life; Very good display; Enormous selection of interfaces; Very good interface distribution; Generous configuration options; Good keyboard; Very good graphics performance; Very good system performance; Very powerful CPU;...

Unfavorable accessibility of components; Very high price; No modular shaft; Reduced graphics performance when battery powered; Loose battery; (bulky case design)

We already mentioned the Lenovo ThinkPad W520 and the Fujitsu Celsius H710 in the review. Also in this class is the HP Elitebook 8560w. Even more performance is provided by 17" workstations, which can contain more powerful professional graphics chips....

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Hard to beat for the money if the bulk doesn't bother you

 

If you're looking for a thin and light "ultrabook" this isn't it (look at the ThinkPad "X" series, Precision M3800, etc. if that is what you're looking for and be prepared to pay a healthy premium for "thin and light"), but if you need a powerful and...

Very powerful/Fast (runs circles around the 1 year old mid-grade i5 Toshiba Satellite it replaced) ; Excellent durability/build quality (Built like a tank) ; easy upgradability (entire bottom panel removes with two screws allowing easy access to...

Big and bulky, but that is pretty much expected of a desktop replacement class laptop and necessary for adequate cooling and to allow for upgradability and a durable chassis

the good, the bad and the ugly

 

Tried to reach Joy (refurbishers) through technical support line to ask for a replacement battery but they always have a long wait (20 customers holding). They close at 5p EST called today got placed on hold at 4.30pm with 21 customers in the queue. At...

Its an i7 with 8gb memory, Memory slots are available. Metal case

Hugh and I mean huge power supply. (5x normal size and weight). Very heavy. Laptop without power supply is also very heavy. Together you need a fork lift. Battery lasts less than 1 hour (like realistically 30-45 minutes). I believe it is a 6 cell

Power Supply Huge

 

Computer works well. Accepted Windows 10 without a problem. Nice features

Power Supply is huge - nearly the same size as the laptop. Now I have to carry two laptop bags, one for the computer and one for the power supply ; This computer would work if you did not need to travel with it very much. Thinking of painting the power...

Fast, rugged, heavy duty

 

Very fast, plenty of ram, very rugged. Great battery life. I bought this laptop because I needed a rugged high performance laptop. My previous laptop was a Sony that quickly fell apart under normal everyday use. So far my Dell M4600 been great. I feel...

The only con that I feel regarding this machine is that it is big and heavy. The laptop weighs 6.5 pounds and the formfactor is about 2 inches deep. Other than that it's perfect
