Dell Precision M6300 Leak
Dell is about to release one of its most powerful notebooks to date as a mobile workstation, according to French enthusiasts who have leaked its details and photos. The Precision M6300 will directly take over from today's M90 and should represent multiple firsts for most any notebook maker, including the option of a full 8GB of memory on systems running 64-bit editions of Windows. Processor options will also venture beyond what Dell ships today at up to a 2.6GHz Core 2 Extreme. A 256MB Quadro FX 1600M is certain to provide fast 3D but will scale up as high as a 512MB FX 2600M or 3600M with future upgrades, according to the claims.
Unlike most leaks, the new information points to a specific worldwide release date of August 31st, when prices should also be available. A base system is known to start with a 1.8GHz Core 2 Duo and a 17-inch, 1440x900 display but will have the option of a 1920x1200 matte or glossy screen as well as a Blu-Ray drive for extremely large backups and authoring HD movies.
