Reviews for the Dell Precision M4800

85% Review Dell Precision M4800 Notebook | Notebookcheck
Setting standards. Dell's former Precision M4700 maintained its top position in our workstation ranking for a year. Now its successor is available and faces extremely high expectations. We exhaustively tested whether it really can live up to them.
70% Dell Precision M4800 review A portable workstation that packs a punch
Source: Techradar English
The Dell Precision M4800 is hardly going to appeal to students looking for a laptop to take to college, but design professionals who need a portable machine with real 3D grunt will be pleasantly surprised by how capable it is. It's not a complete behemoth like other 17-inch mobile workstations. Choose the display carefully though. The QHD+ IGZO screen is just better in every way, but the well-publicised DPI issue with some software packages might make it more trouble than it's worth.

The Precision’s weakest suit is, perhaps inevitably, battery life. Even with a huge 97Wh, nine-cell power pack under the hood, this powerhouse laptop only lasted 3hrs 28mins in our light-use test. This isn’t a machine you can take out on the road and expect to last a day away from mains power. Think of it more as a workhorse machine that’s best deployed in environments where a small amount of mobility is needed. A laptop to carry from desk to desk in a design studio, factory or warehouse environment, perhaps.

In addition to its durable yet handsome chassis, the Dell Precision M4800 is a productivity beast. This workstation offers a powerful Intel Core i7 processor and Nvidia Quadro GPU, which can easily handle graphics-intensive tasks like video editing. We also like the comfy keyboard, sharp QHD+ display and robust audio. However, the M4800 is a little lacking when it comes to battery life.

80% Dell Precision M4800 Mobile Workstation review: a fast laptop with an excellent screen
Source: PC Advisor English
The spectacular screen on the Dell Precision M4800 will make maximum impact in the high-end video and CAD space. That screen comes at a price however – this less than portable workstation represents a substantial investment. And Windows and many programs will be difficult to use with this resolution of screen. Power concerns may also dictate adding a secondary battery, but this is a fast, professional workhorse that could deliver real productivity results.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  


4900MQ: Haswell-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.8 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.8 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4600 GPU and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


15.6":

15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.

Market share regarding sales of personal computers in 2007 (market research IDC): HP 18.9 %, Dell 16.4 %, Acer 9.9 %, Lenovo 7.5 %, Apple 5.7 %
