There is also a useless to me infrared port, a smart card reader for two-factor authentication, useless to mea modem port again, uselessan ethernet port, an S-video out port, a VGA port, a serial port, and a headphone adapter.

There is no built-in microphone, another potential turnoff to some buyers, though there is a place to plug in an external microphone. Overall, this is the worst part about the M70—too many useless ports, and some glaring m07.

If you plan to run Linux, I would strongly recommend getting this one instead of the Dell-branded adapter, because the Intel wireless worked correctly without any tweaking with all the Linux distributions I tried. During this time I mainly used the system to download large demo files at over kbps, so the hard drive and wireless card were constantly at work.


I measured a battery life of about 2. From this K70 estimate that the battery can support 2.

The Precision M70 was no exception, but once I did get it going, Linux performance was superb it did, however, take close to 50 seconds to boot up, about 3 times slower than Windows. I chose Ubuntu Linuxa distribution based on Debian, but more up-to-date. I should also note that the Knoppix Janual CD v3. Here is how I got Ubuntu working.

Unless you need high-precision OpenGL prwcision 3D graphics, you may be better off getting an Acer TravelMatewhich has very comparable specifications and performance.

Visit our network of sites: Pentium M Processor 1. There are very few laptops that fulfill all the requirements. But the steep price tag, low LCD resolution, lack of RPM drive, and middle-of-the-road graphics card dissuaded me. The Dell Precision M70, on the other hand, fit all my requirements.

I immediately jumped on it and placed a call to Dell. By calling them, rather than ordering online, I was able to receive the same discount as the coupon, as well as avoid the shipping charge, which the website wanted to add to my bill. All in all this was a superb bargain. The coupons were gone the next day. I am not sure how often these coupons run; you may have to wait a long time. The case is mostly magnesium alloy, but the touchpad and keyboard are plastic.


The dimensions are as advertised, 1. Overall the notebook feels delk and is quite portable for its size, and it just fits in the Targus backpack that I used for my old One complaint I have is that the power cable is shorter than in previous Dell models.
