Reviews for the Dell Precision M6600

90% Dell Precision M6600
Source: PC World English
What you get for that cost and bulk is a solid workstation-class system that should run your professional applications with aplomb. The addition of capacitive touch is useful when you’re presenting work to clients or staff, while the pen touch enhances your creative efforts. If $5700 is too rich for your blood, you can opt for traditional rotating hard drives, a lesser GPU, and even a lower-performance CPU, though such changes won’t reduce the weight and bulk. When you pull the M6600 out of your bag, your clients will know you’re serious about your work.
