Review Dell Precision M6800 Notebook

 

Upgradeable Work Machine. This large 17-inch Dell workstation is well-equipped and offers plenty of space for further customization. But is it enough to compete with the smaller Dell Precision M4800? Find out in our in-depth review. ...

Case; Upgrade options; Assortment of port and positioning; Keyboard; System performance; CAD performance; Noise emissions and battery life during low load

Weight; Customization options for private users; Price; Fluctuating CPU clock in test model

Middling battery life ; Heavy, thick design ; Disappointing speakers

Dell Precision M6800 Mobile Workstation review

 

The Dell Precision M6800 is the latest version of Dell's 17-inch professional workstation laptop, replacing the outgoing M6700, with Dell's marketing copywriter announcing it as ‘the world's most powerful 17” Workstation'.

The Dell Precision M3800 Professional Workstation can serve well as a desktop replacement for professionals who'd like the flexibility of being able to lug their workstation around. It has old-fashioned but perhaps classic laptop styling. Materials and...
