Does the 6600M use a Dell tablet for its display, or something else?

The display unit in the 6600M/6400M has electronics that are similar to a tablet computer, but it is not an off the shelf tablet.

The display module in the 6000 "M" models does not utilize an internal battery that requires periodic recharging.

ok  but i look for only battery or not   
since i put that in "enclosed" remote space and totally unattended ,i prefer avoid have battery ,specially lipo

case 1  no battery  --> got  6600M  , no use of display but may good for local debog ..
case 2 have battery of some kind - ->  got 6600 + Mastero  ,so not leave the display (battery) on the remote site

If it is an enclosed space, make sure to provide for ventilation. The radio need about two inches clearance on both sides for air intake.

If thos is in a secure box or cabinet you might think about putting vents on the bottom to allow air in and exhaust fan on top to allow warm air out.
