    I've ordered generics from Newegg twice. Both looked 100% legit Dell, and worked well.

    The only issue is the second one is slightly off in size, so every now and then when I move my laptop the battery falls out and the machine loses power. Annoying, but not that bad now that it's a spare machine at home and I mostly use my work laptop or Pixelbook when I'm more mobile.

    Thanks for sharing. I think it might be worthwhile to get the original (hopefully) from provantage.

    It sounds like your CPU is done which you already know. If you look to buy "new" one anything from 4700mq to 4940mx will work fine.

    Long time ago i went with 4710mq as it was the same price as 4700mq for a few mhz more. For inlaws i went with 4702mq (35w) as about a year ago it was around 50€ while others were double or more.

    On a side note, did you test all your ram sticks or transfer them around while cpu testing?

    The M6800/M4800 also works with ES's.

    An update on my battery search.

    I ordered the part labeled 451-BBGO from Provantage but I received a battery that fits but doesn't look like the original at all, instead of the satin finish, this has a glossy plastic finish and the rubber feet don't look the same as the original.

    It doesn't match the photos shown on the listing, which are what the original battery I have looks like.

    Just a buyer beware.

    I was hoping it would be legitimate given the type of business Provantage seems to be.

    So third party/knock offs are the only option now? I'll mail Dell and see if we get somewhere.

    Can't believe they're leaving so much money on the table!

    Hi everybody,
    I intend to buy an old Dell M4800 but I heard someone say that Dell M4800 version with screen 3K (3200x1800), 4K screen has error. Does anyone used Dell M4800 3K/ 4K screen have a screen error? Whoever used it, please give me some advice. Tks so much.

    Can I ask if the Dell M6800 series has an IPS screen panel? Or is it just TN panel ?

    M4800 was sold with both 3200x1800 and 4K panels. They initially offered only 3200x1800 and started offering 4K panels later on.
    IPS panel is not an option with Precision M6800.
