Reviews for the Dell Precision M6300
Heavy Worker. The Precision series by Dell was especially designed for professionals working with CAD applications and visualizations and demanding high video performance, reliability, and good support. The M6300 is a robust desktop replacement computer in 17 inch format. Various configuration options make it possible to turn it into a high-performance workstation.
overall a great & relatively cheap desktop replacement notebook, which can be used for intensive visual programs (cad, hd decoding, games, ...). i can really recommend this laptop, if you have the money left and need a very fast desktop replacement, which can handle every 3D application with no problems. but if you don't need the 3D power and use to cary your notebook around every day, you might like a smaller one more.

This Dell 17" laptop is a great performer and extremely well built laptop. It seems to be built well enough to be thrown around in day to day use, and hold up throughout a reasonable life cycle in a corporate environment. The SSD option, while expensive, significantly improves both durability and performance of this workstation. The only problems I found which don't relate directly to the function of the laptop are the lack of a second hard drive bay, which would be helpful given the relatively low capacity of the SSD. Additionally, the lack of a dedicated number pad will be a issue for some users and the weight and bulk of the M6300 make it a desktop replacement workstation and not the best solution for corporate road warriors.

Users who favour functionality and don't mind lugging additional weight if it gives them the equivalent of a true desktop environment will find much to like in the Dell Precision M6300, a workstation in the form factor of a laptop. The Dell Precision M6300 is a breed apart; legitimately, a laptop workstation. Many users will see it as a superior business laptop. And given its reasonable pricing, the only thing those power users will have to consider carefully when examining this system is whether they can comfortably deal with the 4kg. If so, they'll find a truly terrific machine.

The Precision M6300 is a high-end desktop replacement with many available configurations and one of the best customer service and warranty terms on the market. 3D designers will appreciate its performance, sound quality and reliable chassis. It is built to last and gives maximum satisfaction as long as a specific build and design is not an obstacle and WUXGA screen is picked (WXGA will not be acceptable for most professionals).

NVIDIA Quadro FX 1600M: This is a highend workstation graphic chip (for CAD and 3D programs optimized) with DirectX 10 and good OpenGL support - based on the GeForce 8700M GT graphic card.
Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.
Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).
The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.
The T9300 is a fast middle class dual core CPU for laptops and similar to the T9400 but with a lower FSB.

This large display size is used for laptops which are mainly intended for an use on a desk.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.
