Reviews for the Dell Precision M6400

Dell Precision M6400 Review
Source: notebookforums.com English
Was a little underwhelmed when first opened the box, in part because it looks like a gray laptop - nothing special. Once hefted out (yes tis a bit on the heavy side) began to realise how solid this thing is. Well I can confirm it's fast - everything is really snappy, but this may be windows 7 and the 8 gig of ram + raid 0 but this thing is designed for a 64 bit OS period. In fact the slowest time is waiting for it to boot past the bios - windows starts up pretty darn fast. A bit of overkill for me as I did not really need this beast - brought it second hand from Grays online in Australia paid $2000 - delivered (ausi dollars = $1320US) so was pretty darn cheap.

NVIDIA Quadro FX 2700M: Professional mobile workstation card with certified drivers. Based on the GeForce 9700M GTS. Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics 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.
