Dell releases new Precision M60’s notebook

The Dell Precision M60’s 128MB NVIDIA Quadro FX Go700 graphics accelerator delivers richly detailed images to the 15.4-inch UltraSharpTM  wide-aspect display, which allows users room for large designs & assemblies, multiple windows or expansive tool palettes. Graphics performance is a strong suit of the M60, with workstation-class OpenGL hardware acceleration and certifications on the leading computer-aided design and digital content creation applications. As with all Dell Precision Workstations, the M60 comes standard with 24×7 dedicated phone support.

Designers who manipulate large, complex models will appreciate the M60’s support of up to 2 GB of DDR-SDRAM and available 7200 RPM hard drives, as well as an integrated gigabit1 (10/100/1000) Ethernet controller for ultra-fast file transfers over a network. At the M60’s core is the Intel® PentiumTM  M mobile processor, which supports CentrinoTM  wireless technology and has been shown to improve performance over its predecessor, the M50. The system also features an integrated SmartCard reader for security, two USB 2.0 ports, hot-swappable media bay and tough new Tri-MetalTM  chassis.

“Workstation customers desire mobility without having to compromise performance,” said Tim Mattox, vice president of client product marketing. “The M60 offers best-in-class graphics, storage and industrial design that extends Precision’s product leadership position, delivering the performance of a true workstation in a mobile form factor.”
