Reviews for the Dell Precision M90

Dell Precision M90 Review
Source: Notebookreview.com English
I am very pleased with the Precision M90. I have yet to have any problems with it. It is a very strong performer as well. In my opinion, this is the perfect notebook for anyone looking for a strong 3D modeling machine with a good build. I would also recommend this to anyone looking for a professional looking and responding notebook with plenty of power for gaming. However, it can be quite pricey (though I would say usually cheaper than an XPS M1710), so if you're looking for just power, you may want to look elsewhere. And if you're just into gaming, you may want to know that the Quadro has problems with some games, and is indeed much more expensive than its Geforce counterparts.

The Precision M90 is pitched squarely at content creators, graphics professionals and anyone who needs sheer brute computing force and high-end graphics. The laptop is certified by no less than 31 independent system vendors, which means the laptop will run the like of 3DS Max and all of Adobe’s software without a problem.

NVIDIA Quadro FX 1500M: NVIDIA Quadro FX 1500M is the version of 7900 GS video card for notebooks, which is optimized for CAD and professional 3D-applications. 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 Duo: Double Core processor with a very good relation of performance to current consumption. The 2 MB L2 Cache are used together by the double. The maximum capacity of 31 watts is only 4 watts more than with the Pentium M (predecessor). Both cores are lowered automatically and independently of each other by speed steps down to 1 GHz. In addition it now supports also SSE3 instructions. At least it is just as fast as a equivalent Pentium M. With applications, which were designed for multi-processors, the performance can be nearly twice as fast as with the Pentium M (e.g. CineBench around 86% fast)
T2600: Second fastest Core Duo based on the Yonah core. Does not support 64 Bit operating systems.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
