Dell Precision M4800 review

 

A portable workstation that packs a punch

Powerful CPU performance ; Excellent GPU performance ; 32GB of memory available ; Huge array of expansion ports

TN screen has poor colour reproduction ; Hybrid hard disks aren't great ; Like most workstations, it's big, heavy and ugly

While it might not be the most attractive laptop on the market the Dell Precision M4800 packs a punch when it comes to specs. There are some negatives that hold it back from being truly great, however.

Dell Precision M4800 Mobile Workstation review

 

However not only is the list price much more expensive than its Mac rival, this is also a far heavier beast; our test model with slot-loading DVD±RW drive came in at weighty 3.28 kg.

The spectacular screen on the Dell Precision M4800 will make maximum impact in the high-end video and CAD space. That screen comes at a price however – this less than portable workstation represents a substantial investment. And Windows and many...

Review Dell Precision M4800 Notebook

 

Setting standards. Dell's former Precision M4700 maintained its top position in our workstation ranking for a year. Now its successor is available and faces extremely high expectations. We exhaustively tested whether it really can live up to them. ...

That Dell launched such a decent casing with its Precision 4600 that it still serves as the basis for a very good workstation today

Dell Precision M4800 Workstation

 

Very upgradable machine 32 GB ram mSATA slot Optical drive can be replaced with battery Very good price, no similar specs from other laptop brands

No FireWire ports 1394a,b A trend with all new laptops. It's a shame one has to get a clunky expresscard just to get a tiny port like this.

M4x00 Not the best build

 

The build quality was bad enough that I could see the machine becoming unusable pretty quickly if you were unlucky. The quality of the machine is not good enough for me to consider buying a new Dell when the time comes. I may try the new Razer Blade Pro.

These machines are good value for money on the compute side. I use this as a programmers workstation and it does very well at this task. SSD appears to be of good quality and has retained low latencies even after some time of use Graphics are good with...

The display to one of my recent Samsung monitors does not return after resuming from power saving sleep of the machine. The USB ports have started physically falling apart and two are no longer usable. It is very heavy.
