Dell Precision M6600
At nearly 9 pounds, Dell's Precision M6600 bucks the trend of smaller and lighter notebooks; in fact, it's the biggest, heaviest laptop on this list. But it's also a beast. The 17-inch laptop contains a second generation Intel Core processor (i5 or i7), and can house up to 32 GB of DDR3 memory at 1333 Mhz (16 GB at 1600 Mhz) as well as up to 512 GB of SSD storage and 750 GB of traditional hard drive storage. The Precision M660 also comes with a discrete graphics card (AMD FirePro or Nvidia Quadro), which is key because the mobile workstation can support up to four different external displays. And let's not forget Dell's mobile workstation comes packed with plenty of ports, including two USB 3.0 hubs. Starting at $2,218, the Precision M660 is an expensive machine but one that can rival a traditional desktop workstation.
