The Precision M4800 is a four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port notebook PC. Most of the other notebook PCs of this spec and age have between one and four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.

Chart Edit

Good Brand

Many processor core portable PCs manufactured by DELL have good reviews on average. We also checked the reviews for all notebook PCs (not just many processor core portable PCs) and found that DELL also has good reviews across its entire range.

1920 X 1080 Pixels Display Resolution

The DELL Precision M4800 has a maximum display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. That's 98% more display resolution than the most frequently found display resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels.

Quite Fast Processor Clock Speed

Across all the laptops of this spec and age the processor clock speeds range from 1GHz to 3GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 2.2GHz. At 2.7 gigahertz, the Precision M4800 has a quite fast processor clock speed compared to most of the other comparable spec portable PCs that were launched around the same time as the Precision M4800.

We compared this portable PC to all the other 2.7GHz processor clock speed laptops and we think the DELL Precision M6700 (£699.99) which is cheaper is also worth considering.

Portable PCs with a faster processor clock speed that might also be worth considering include the HP ZBook 15 (2.8GHz) which is also cheaper.
