Solidly built, plenty of processing power, room for up to 16GB of RAM, comfortable to use, dual-mode wireless networking, ExpressCard and PC Card slots

Fingerprint reader isn't standard, modular bay doesn't have a second battery option

For users who run engineering, design or animation programs, this mobile workstation is a worthwhile choice. It's very fast, and the best part is you won't be shackled to your desk and will be able to use the same machine either at home or in the office.

The Dell's chassis is a little blocky, but its sturdyness can't be knocked. Or rather, it can, and it won't make a difference

Massive graphics application performance; Unrivalled screen quality; Speedy processor and memory; High quality build

Astronomical price

Matching all-out performance with one of the best laptop screens we've seen to date, this is a near perfect – if very expensive – package

Dell Precision M6400 Covet review

 

Delivering a workstation in a mobile form in no easy task, but the Dell Precision M6400 is a near perfect example of how to do it right.

Beautifully built, incredibly fast and stuffed with features, the Dell Precision M6400 Covet is a real thoroughbred among workstation laptops. If you're after a serious mobile workstation, then this has to be top of your shortlist.

Dell Precision M6400 Covet

 

No, the price at the top of this page isn't a misprint. Dell's high end mobile workstation - the Precision M6400 Covet - does, in fact, cost more than four grand; as much as a second hand hatchback, and considerably dearer than any laptop we've ever...

If you don't care about weight, this is what a laptop should be

If you don't care about weight, this is what a laptop should be

If you're after a desktop replacement machine, you could certainly do worse than the Precision workstation, and we have no hesitation in recommending it for business users wanting a laptop with the lot.

Dell Precision E6400 14" Widescreen

 

The description listed for this laptop is erroneous. The Dell Latitude E6400 has a 14" screen. The Dell Precision M6400 has a 17" screen. I can understand your frustration in expecting to receive a E6400 and getting a M6400 instead. I purchased a M6400...
