Dell has updated it’s workstation-class Precision M4600 and M6600 series Notebooks with a choice of configuring them with a second 512GB SATA 3 solid state storage drive for an extra $1120. The Texas-based Computer manufacturer becomes the first to offer this super-fast hardware standard in laptop form and has also seen fit to provide a third internal drive in the form of a 128GB mini-PCIe SSD for the 17.3-inch M6600 series. The M4600 provides a 15.6-inch display at two different resolutions of 1366 x 768 and 1920 x 1080 whilst it’s bigger brother now includes an NVIDIA Quadro 5010M graphics processor with 4GB of GDDR 5 memory, which should ensure you won’t drop a frame when playing Deus Ex: Human Revolution.
Storage and graphics options aside these Precision Workstations also provide the latest Sandy Bridge CPUs from Intel and include a wide range of I/O with USB 2.0, 3.0, Blu-Ray, eSATA and HDMI. Prices for the M4600 start from $1,119, which begins with a basic Core i5 CPU, AMD FirePro M5950 GPU with 1GB of memory, 2GB of RAM and a 250GB hard drive. This 15.6-inch powerhouse can be scaled up to a price point in excess of $6822 with the addition of the aforementioned dual 512GB SSDs, a higher Res Anti-Glare Premium Panel display, an Nvidia Quadro 200M GPU, 16GB of RAM, Blu-Ray and a Core i7-2920XM 2.5GHz CPU. The 17.3-inch M6600 Behemoth begins at a modest $1599 but can be maxed out to include similar internals to the M4600 but with extra graphical firepower and third storage drive. These additions increase the total to almost $10,000.
