I want to buy Dell Latitude 7470 (i7 6600U 16Gb RAM 256 GB SSD) to develop on the go in addition to my desktop.

Will Delphi 10 work fast on i7 6600U processor?

Microsoft uses this processor on their high-end Surface Book with "Impressive performance levels".
With 16Gb RAM and SSD, I think you can't get Delphi faster than this..
Maybe I can borrow the machine and test it for you ;-)

I have a year old Lenovo Z70 with Core I7 5500 U processor and 12 GB memory and it's blazingly fast. It does, however, have a hybrid drive (part SSD), so I'm not sure if that makes a difference.

Hi,

SSD makes a HUGE difference.

Yes it will be very fast. I have a similar setup and I don't have anything to complain about.

No problem with Delphi performance on the Dell notebook I have, but be prepared to deal with the 4k screens that come standard on today's laptops. The IDE sometimes doesn't handle resolution the way you'd want. I think even in later IDE versions.

The Dell Latitudes are beautifully designed machines - sleekly built, lightweight, technologically advanced in features and good screen real estate (on the 17" models). However they are designed with the business executive user in mind (MS-Office, presentations, sales applications etc) , not hardcore software developers or specialists (engineers, architects, software developers etc).

The Intel Core i7 6600U processor is a lightweight processor designed for notebooks and ultrabooks and with low power consumption in mind. See a more detailed review of this processor here:
http://www.notebookcheck.net/Intel-Core-i7-6600U-Notebook-Processor.149429.0.html

If you are a serious software developer, a typical work day has your workstation running one or more virtual machines in addition to one or more database servers, other servers, and a dozen other software (text editors, IDEs, MS-Access, other database tools with large datasets open, a few PDF files, help files, a smidgen browser windows and other utilities come to mind). This workload calls for a very high performance processor, large amounts of RAM and large, fast hard drives - typically found in workstation computers.

I highly recommend the Dell Precision Mobile Workstation for use as a development workstation. It has a proper Core i5 / i7 desktop processor and supports the Intel Xeon server processors as well. Being in the 7th generation, the design is refined, and their order website allows you to customize the specs of the components to your wishes. Here's a link to the 17" model on the Dell USA website (link is working at the time of this writing):
http://www.dell.com/us/business/p/precision-m7710-workstation/pd?ref=PD_Family

Dell's docking station addition is what makes the Precision mobile workstation a compelling office development workstation, especially when coupled with the fantastic Dell UltraSharp monitors:
