Reviews for the Dell Precision M2400

86% Review Dell Precision M2400 Notebook | Notebookcheck
Smallest in League. The Dell Precision M2400 is with its 14 inch screen the smallest notebook of the powerful workstation series from Dell. Because the size of the case has an direct impact on the reserve capacities in terms of performance, because the built-in hardware finally has to be sufficiently cooled, the Precision M2400's performance is also lowest of this model lineup.

Dell's Precision M2400 Mobile Workstation is a 14.1in notebook built for users who desire a powerful yet portable computer on which to run graphic design and engineering applications. It looks big and menacing at first glance, but it's not actually as heavy as it looks. Dell's Precision M2400 Mobile Workstation is a 14.1in powerhouse that's aimed at users who want to run demanding design applications. We like its build quality and speed, but wish that it came with a few more features given it costs over $3000.

The higher-resolution screen might make the Dell Precision M2400 more palatable to creatives, but the entry-level graphics chip makes it hard to recommend. As a mobile workstation, however, the Dell Precision M2400 works well.

Comment

NVIDIA Quadro FX 370M: Based on the GeForce 9200M / 9300M GS Chip with professional drivers for CAD, DCC, and visualization applications. Supports PureVideo HD. The memory clockrate depends on the built in memory chips (GDDR2: 400 MHz, GDDR3: 700 MHz) Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
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.
T9400:
The T9400 is a fast middle class dual core CPU for laptops and basically a Core 2 Duo P9500 with a higher TDP of 35 Watt.

14.1":

This display size represents a treshold between the small sizes of subnotebooks and ultrabooks and the standard-sizes of office- and multimedia laptops on the other hand. Laptops with that size are somewhat rare, nowadays.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
2.38 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.


Dell: Dell Inc. is a multinational technology corporation that develops, manufactures, sells, and supports personal computers and other computer-related products. Based in Texas, Dell employs more than 82,700 people worldwide (2009). In 2006, Dell purchased the computer hardware manufacturer Alienware. In most countries, the laptops are directly sold to consumers by Dell and each notebook custom-assembled according to a selection of options. In 2014, the global market share of Dell laptops was 12.3% and it is 14% in 2016.
78%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
