[qubes-users] HCL - Dell Precision M6800 Workstation

I’m a bit of a Qubes novice, this is my first setup and Ive been up and running for about 4 months now, so I’ve poked into most of the corners, tho not too deep.
Easy install, stable AF and pretty fast. I’m not terribly impressed with playback performance with multiple video streams. But I’m running three 27" displays off a laptop so I have no business complaining about the refresh rate. Near as I can tell ALL of the hardware is supported from first boot. Audio, video, USB, all elements fully functional, I’m pretty sure the TPM is not being utilized, but thats probably due to me not knowing a lot still.I am struggling to get my solokey setup, but thats def an id10T issue…

I highly recommend this platform, its a little heavy for a laptop, but its got a BIG sexy screen, 3 yes three drive bays (1 msata, two 2.5 SATA3) DVDBurner, modular video card upgrades available NVidia K4000 or ATI Firebolt and VGA, HDMI, and DisplayPort supporting 2 external displays without the docking station which provides support for a fourth ($15 on ebay) 5 USB3 ports, and it all f’in works with Qubes…

I see refirbs onsale now in the $500-$800 area… Festivus is upon us… shouldn’t SOMETHING be easy in 2020? :smiley:
