When buying a laptop, the first question you probably ask yourself is “power or portability?” The smaller a lappie is, the less capable it’s going to be when it comes to running demanding applications; the more powerful a laptop is, the less likely it is that you’re going to want to lug the thing around town. While most of us try to find some sort of balance between the two, there’s a certain breed of professional who simply must have the most powerful machine this side of the desktop. So this one goes out to you, Lapzilla fans: Dell’s [1] new Precision M6300 enterprise laptop. Rocking a 2.8Ghz, 64-bit Core 2 Duo Extreme Edition X7900 from Intel, a 17 inch 1920×1200 screen and an NVIDIA Quadro FX1600M OpenGL graphics card, the M6300 looks to be both large and in charge. In the options department, you can opt for a 32GB solid-state hard drive or a 7200RPM 160GB drive of the mechanical variety, a DVD, DVD-RW, or Blu-ray writable optical drive and an AT&T HSDPA card. Unfortunately, this monster also sports a proportionally large price tag (the M6300 starts at $2070) but given that Dell is calling the thing a “mobile workstation,” this beast is probably well worth the scratch if you need all that power.
