Dell Precision M4600

  |   by NotebookReview Staff

The Dell Precision M4600 is one of the most powerful 15-inch mobile workstations available. You can configure this notebook with a quad-core i7 Extreme Editionprocessor and most graphic artists and engineers recognize the value of an IPS display. While the starting price of around $1,500 is pretty reasonable it’s important to note that Dell raises the price of the M4600 pretty quickly as soon as you start heavily customizing the system with top-of-the-line components.
