Where other mobile workstations start to fade is just where the M6400 comes into its own. With specifications that even some desktop workstations might struggle to deliver, the flagship mobile workstation from Dell is ideal, even for the most demanding user. Optional Intel® Quad Core processing power, working in harmony with a super-fast 1066MHz FSB, is only matched by the options of RAID 0 storage performance and stunning ATI® FirePro® and NVIDIA® Quadro FX graphics. Designed to be a workstation, the M6400 has the thermal headroom to deliver the certified ISV application performance levels you expect from Dell Precision.
Massive Scalability

Such raw performance needs to be matched with the ability to manage huge amounts of data. The M6400 enables memory scalability up to 16GB thanks to the Intel® Q43 chipset that provides support for 4 memory DIMM slots. With two dedicated hard drive bays the storage capacity can scale up to 1 Terabyte* and, if that isn’t enough, the e-SATA interface enables you to directly connect external SATA hard drives.
