Dell has the M4600 workstation barebones setup for just $660 which I think is a smoking hot deal for a workstation class FHD notebook.

http://configure.us.dell.com/dell...3080460800

Just add the FHD screen for $50. You should do other upgrades yourself.

Base specs:
Core i5-2520
1080p display (get the upgrade, you won't regret it)
ATi FirePro M5950 discrete graphics card (like a 6770)
9 cell battery
2 gb RAM
320 gb hard drive
Total = $660

I think this is my second SD thread ever so please be gentle! Thanks for looking.

This is amazing for the specs, considering most vendors don't ever sell FHD for under 1k. I just ordered my Sony S series IPS FHD for 805 yesterday...(my needs are only for code development though)

xoticpc.com you can build a much much much more powerful laptop for cheaper in general. Not sure why this is that slick.
Hahahaha. No.

Wish it's the M6700 with the FirePro M6000 graphics card. The M6600 is old.
Well, an I7 M6600 is still a really good unit. I got mine in one of the outlet deals a year ago (buy 4 sell 3 came freeBig Grin)) I flashed the firepro over to 6970 and can run anything i want at 1080p...

Again, worth repeating, this is a business grade vs commercial grade laptop comparison. For 3 years, dell will come to your home and fix it. That is hard to beat. They actually went and fixed one of my sales, when the buyer was unhappy with something...

Good display but Dell has about an 12X markup. Sell the hdd, sell the ram, sell the warranty, etc.
16GB of ram upgrade: $705..WTH. It normally goes for $50.
I can get a blu-ray drive for under $40 but $370 is their upgrade...talk about markup.

Ugh, awesome laptop but not exactly one I would want to be carrying around with me all day (10 pounds with the AC adapter!).

The firepro and 7970 are the same chip. The drivers are written to support cad and work stuff for the firepro while the 7970 is geared to gaming...cant say that i have data to show there is an improvement as i flashed it right away....Yeah i know, 3 year warranty is voided and all but im pretty sure i can figure out how to flash back when needed...

I'm not too familiar with this flashing video card stuff. Can you explain more about it?

Call me a skeptic but I REALLY REALLY doubt you can get 7970 performance out of a M6600 by flashing it.

it might just detect it as a 7970 for compatiablity reasons but it will not performe at that level.

I did alittle google and I didn't really see any info on m6600 to 7970 flashing.


Prove me wrong by providing link. it will make this a hot deal.

My post was off tangent....

The deal is for a 4600 which comes with a Firepro 5950
I was talking about the 6600 (the 17" model) that comes with the firepro 8900

very very tempted to get one of this laptop.
I used to have old vostro laptop which was pretty good built quality.
How's this business class laptop compared to consumer product?
