Notebookcheck: They got the Core i7 2920XM model with Nvidia Quadro 400 and 8GB GB RAM. The Precision M6600 is praised for being very powerful, but is heavily criticized for being very heavy. It weighs in at 3.8 kilo grams which totals to 4.8 kg if you add its power adapter that weighs 1kg into the equation. It is as heavy as the Asus G73w that we reviewed earlier this year.
Build quality is said to be extremely nice and materials are of high quality. Dell has made good use of its chassis and has put in lot of ports – Express Card 54mm, 3x USB 2.0, 2 USB 3.0, Firewire, VGA, HDMI, DisplayPort, Kensington Lock, eSata, Docking Station Port, Audio Connections: microphone, headphones, 10-in-1 Card Reader, SmartCard and Fingerprint Reader.
Other notable points:

* Performance, as expected is amazing. Its processor scored 15591 in PCmark vantage.
* For some reason, GPU performance degrades when the notebook is on battery power
* Despite all that power inside, the Dell M6600 runs very silently
* The notebook got more than 7 hours of battery life when surfing via Wi-Fi.
