- Dell Precision mobile workstations are the world’s most powerful, building on the company’s heritage of developing innovative workstation technology
- All day battery life, fastest memory speeds and highest expandability and storage options enable users to work effectively regardless of location
- Dell’s Precision M6700 is the industry’s lightest 17-inch mobile workstation, first to offer built-in NVIDIA® 3D Vision Pro™ solution, Gen 3 professional graphics and Phoenix Red Covet Edition
ROUND ROCK, Texas — (BUSINESS WIRE) — July 24, 2012 — Dell today announced the next generation Dell Precision mobile workstations for engineering and design professionals who need uncompromising performance and dependability wherever their demanding work takes them. Film editors on movie sets, architects at construction sites, geophysicists in the field and many other mobile professionals can now run their graphics or compute intensive applications faster and more accurately regardless of the location.

“Appalachian State University relies on Dell’s tower and mobile workstations in our IT, Building Science, Geological, Interior Design and Astronomy departments and they’ve proven to be bullet-proof for our varying high-performance and critical computing needs,” said Stephen Taylor, an IT Manager at Appalachian State University. “I’ve used Dell Precision mobile workstations for the past six years and the attention to detail Dell put into the look, feel and performance of these new systems elevates them to a new level. These are truly mobile workstations without compromise and they have changed the way I look at all Dell products going forward.”
Dell continues to build on its workstation leadership with two new systems, the Dell Precision M4700 and M6700 – the world’s most powerful 15-inch and 17-inch mobile workstations. The M4700 is Dell’s 15-inch mobile workstation with exceptional portability and performance and the Dell Precision M6700 provides fixed workstation capability and higher performing graphics with a 17-inch display. The popular Covet Edition is back on the 17-inch version, featuring a brilliant Phoenix Red color finish for extra appeal and edge to edge Corning® Gorilla® Glass 2 for brighter images and increased resilience and protection.
The Dell Precision M4700 and M6700 incorporate the latest Intel Core i5, i7 and Extreme Edition processors with Turbo Boost Technology for optimal performance and an extensive choice of professional graphics including the NVIDIA Quadro K-series GPUS and AMD FirePro graphics. The M6700 is the first and only to offer AMD FirePro M6000 with PCIe x16 Gen 3 for fast data throughput.
Additionally, Dell provides DDR3 SDRAM with up to 32GB¹ of system memory and 1600MHz of memory speed and up to 16GB¹ of 1866MHz memory, the fastest memory available on a mobile workstation, for high performance and fast access to large data sets. They also offer an optional SATA3 512GB¹ solid state drive (SSD).
Both systems come with outstanding expandability in the form of RAID 0/1/5 and three storage devices with up to 1.8TB¹ of total storage in the M4700 and up to four storage devices with up to 2.8TB¹ of total storage in the M6700. That means not only can Dell Precision mobile workstations deliver graphic-intensive designs fast, but also can store them locally no matter where they are.
Delivering on the promise of a true desktop replacement, the M4700 and M6700 offer a wide array of ports which enables users to connect to a greater number of formats and devices without carrying around multiple dongles, increase storage and connect to more displays. The I/O ports include two USB 3.0, two USB 2.0 and one eSATA / USB combo ports and three integrated video ports - one VGA, one HDMI and one DisplayPort 1.2.
Designed for increased uptime and dependability while working in or away from the office, the new mobile workstations feature a durable aluminum and magnesium alloy chassis that is MIL-STD 810G tested, the lightest 17-inch design and all day battery life. An optional slice battery, ExpressCharge battery and NVIDIA Optimus™ technology, which intelligently and automatically optimizes the system to provide outstanding graphics performance when needed while extending battery life, are also available on both the M4700 and M6700.
The new workstations also have quiet dual fans and cooling solutions for
the CPU and graphics to enable long periods of high performance without
overheating and an easy ejectable primary hard drive caddy for customers
working with large volumes of data or sensitive data and need to remove
or swap out hard drives frequently.
