I'm deciding between the HP 8730w or the Dell M6400, and was wondering how solid the laptop feels, and if the early software quirks (like the sound breakage) have been resolved?

Dell :: M6400 USH And ControlPoint Security Manager Is It Worth It?

Feb 26, 2009

I've been playing around with my M6400 for a few days now and I was wondering if anyone could shed some light on the USH and ControlPoint?

I'm running Win XP Pro SP3 32bit and removed all the ControlPoint apps when I received my laptop. It's been running fine but I was wondering how and what I could use the USH for?

These may sound stupid but bear with me...
1. Is the USH the wireless card icon on the palm rest?
2. Is that wireless device compatible with any RFID cards or tags?
3. Do I have to use the Dell ControlPoint security manager to use it?
4. Is it worth installing this extraware

Dell :: Precision M6400 Dock

Mar 15, 2009

We currently have many Latitude D830s with the D/Dock stations on lease. When the lease runs out on these, I'd like to get some M6400s.

Are there any similar docking stations available? We currently drive 3 external LCD monitors plus use the lid on each, but 1900x1200 on a 15.4" screen is starting to affect my eyes as I feel the effects of age.

The only docks I've found so far are the port replicators and it looks like you can't use the lid with two monitors. We'd be willing to sacrifice one monitor, but not two. We also don't want to switch to desktops due to frequent travel?

Dell :: Precision M6400 Exposed

Jun 3, 2009

Well with the arrival of my second M6400, this one now detailed in my Sig, the first order of buisness was to drop in two 320 GB 7200 RPM drives and my OEM QX9300 CPU.

So open this baby up I did, and this time I took some shots and will add some comments out the process.

Step One.

Remove the Battery, bottom Base assembly cover, and hard drives.


Step Two.

Remove laptop LED Cover (Bezel) - this requires some care as the power on cable is connected on the underside of the bezel right by the power button.

Also if you have the finger print reader there is a very small ribbon cable that has to be disconnected - carefully, From this exeperiance I suggest placing the bezel at the top of the laptop and after removing the keyboard disconnect the ribbon cable from the main board - it was much easier to reconnect this way, and I dam near broke the small connector on the bezel end.


Step three.

Remove the 4 screws for the keyboard and slide the keyboard upwards toward the screen to disconnect it from the laptop.


Step four.

Flip the laptop over and remove the four m2.5 x 8 mm screws .....

Dell :: Precision M6400 Review

Feb 9, 2009

First Impressions:

Was a little underwhelmed when first opened the box, in part because it looks like a gray laptop - nothing special. Once hefted out (yes tis a bit on the heavy side) began to realise how solid this thing is.

The base is one solid chunk of alloy - built like a tank where is the E1705 has a alloy base this is this is twice as thick. Booted it up and found they had a new installation of Vista Business 64 bit - had a bit of a play then thought time to play with Windows 7 64 bit .....

Dell :: Precision M6400 Or Alienware M17x

Jul 30, 2009

Ive been hunting around for a laptop for a couple of months now and ive still not decided what to get lol, i was initially drawn to the M17x but here in the uk we seem to be paying well over the odds for one compared to the US.

I was looking on ebay earlier and i came across a couple of Dell Precision M6400 laptops with what looks like a huge spec for a decent price, they seemed to offer more value than the M17x at their respective prices.

Now what i need to know is what is the difference between a Precision M6400 and a Precision M6400 Covet ?

How well regarded is a Precision M6400, is it known as a gaming laptop as ive not come across them before.

This is the spec i was looking at, how would this compare against an M17x, how well regarded is the processor and graphics card and the spec in general? ...

Dell :: FX 2700m In Precision M6400 For Occasional Gaming?

Nov 8, 2009

I am after a notebook for work, basicly just nice and fast but i play games maybe an hour a week, although its not much i still want to be able to play all the new games.

I dont want to pay the extra for the 3700m so im left with the choice of the alienware m17x or the Precision. Because its for work and trying to look perfessional i dont think the alienware fits but if the 2700 wont game it will have to do.
