Dell Precision M6500 Review - PCWorld

Dell Precision M6500

 

As mobile workstations go, Dell's Precision range is a pedigree breed and it comes with prices to match. The blood-orange Covet version of the outgoing M6400 came with a near-£5,000 price tag, and you can opt for the same on this new Core i7-equipped...

Massive, powerful and with every optional extra you can dream of, it's (almost) worth the sky-high price
