I've had it for less than two weeks, and so far so good. Minor imperfections are obvious (due to being a refurbished item) but overall performance is satisfactory

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
