The Good The Dell Precision M4600 is a flexible and powerful mobile workstation thanks to an abundant component selection, plentiful ports and connections, and ample warranty, support, and security options.
The Bad Judging from our Dell M4600 review system, quality control is a little lacking.
The Bottom Line If you've got the money--and a strong back--the Dell Precision M4600 is a very good mobile workstation.
Dell Precision M4600
As mobile workstations go, the Dell Precision M4600 delivers everything we expect. There are several configurations available with plenty of options for fine-tuning it to your performance needs. It's stacked with ports, inputs, and outputs so it can easily connect up to a number of external devices and just as easily stand on its own. And Dell offers the warranty, support, and security options professionals need to make sure their data is safe and they stay up and running.
Our review system was loaded with high-end components and it performed accordingly. No disappointments there, really. What we were less than thrilled with were either matters of personal preference or things that might have more to do with the quality of our particular laptop than the M4600 on the whole.
Also, while we expect mobile workstations to be expensive, the M4600 seems a bit pricier than similarly configured competing systems. Then again, the regular price is never what you end up paying; the starting price for the M4600 was $1,798 at the time of our review, but Dell was offering a configuration for just $1,119.
