You're right, Dell are a little expensive than Clevo, but there are some retail sellers where you can find good offers in USA and Australia, where we bought usually our workstations.
There are differences between Dell and other portable worstations, even between M6500 and M6600. We opted to buy another M6500 due the screen resolution on M6600 and others competitors in the higher range are lower than M6500, 1920x1080 against 1920x1200, this possibility offers you take screenshots with a highend resolution before rendering.
Other feature in dell's M6500 is the amount of Ram you can dispose, 32 Gb against 24 Gb maximum in others.
Regarding Graphic Cards, now are available Quadro 5010M with 4Gb, but only in USA market, in Europe are only available with Quadro 4000M, 2 Gb.
Mountain Workstation and Azken are also specific worktations dedicated to rendering.
