REVIEW: Dell Precision M4600

 

The Dell Precision workstation family caters for all types of designers and engineers, from those using entry-level 2D CAD, right up to high-end simulation software. But workstation-class performance and reliability doesn't end on the desktop. Ten...

However, it’s heavy, the 9-cell (97Wh) battery is good for just 3 hours, and the optional extras mean you’ll need deep pockets. We’d also have liked a bigger trackpad. It’s worth noting that its bigger brother, the Precision M6600, offers even better...

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

Dell Precision M4600

 

The Dell Precision M4600 is a 15-inch laptop with an Intel Core i5 CPU, 8GB of RAM, a 500GB hard drive and Nvidia graphics with a dedicated 2GB of video memory. While it is touted as a mobile workstation, it is quite heavy and bulky, but it has many...

Consumer review (ciao.co.uk)

This computer is FAST

 

This is the fastest computer I have ever owned. For a laptop it is bulky, but it has the speed of a desktop which more than compensates. In addition, it has been a reliable, low maintenance machine. I have never had trouble doing anything on this...

Speed, durability

bulky, low battery life

Hardware Failure after only using for less than 2 months

 

Laptop shuts itself completely every time after 2 minutes of booting up the machine. I will get back on what might be the problem but this is very stupid.

Consumer review (newegg.com)

absolutely the best laptop ever

 

I bought this laptop for my son-in-law but after receiving it and using it for a while I was reluctant to give it away. I thought I would go ahead and give it to him which I did, thinking I would buy another one for myself but they were out of stock...

I cannot say enough good things about this laptop. This laptop is a computer in itself. I got a 7.5 and above to 7.9 in all categories of the Windows scores. This laptop look like it was brand-new off-the-shelf.

Absolutely no- cons

Best Buy

 

Newegg and DELL, for a Best Buy Combo.

The Machine I ordered was upgraded to an M4700 @ no additional charge. More powerful CPU @ 2.6 GHz and a 1080P Resolution. DELL's support is awesome, updates everything on your computer: Bios, Drivers, and Software.

Absolutely None!!!!

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Very good product

 

A very clean looking product which has enough resources to be a mobile server.

They shipped me a M4700 and i loved the free upgrade and its new specs.

Just a minor ding on the front left and its barely noticeable for considering the free upgrade i don't care since its a refurb product

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.
