Dell is making some noise in the 15-inch range of laptop computers with the announcement of the Precision M4500. It promises to pack a powerful punch — so much so that it will easily become that desktop replacement you always wanted.
It might not be pretty to look at, but Dell has claimed that the Precision M4500 is the most powerful 15.6-inch notebook around, and they are not joking around. This is not your grandma's computer. It has the hardware (and the price tag) to make Apple's typical Macbook Pro seem like child's play.
Desktops? Seriously? Who needs 'em when you have hardware like this:
- Core-i7920XM Quad Core Extreme Edition processor
- Nvidia Quadro FX 1800m GPU video graphics
- 15.6" HD+ sRGB LED display (1920 x 1080 resolution)
- Up to 16GB of RAM
- 64GB SSD MiniCard
- Multi-touch support
- 7+ hours of battery life
- 3 megapixel webcam
- 6 lbs weight
But consider that as merely base platinum edition. If you want to take it up a few more notches, you will be able to.
For under $2,000, you can get a less powerful model with options like the Core i5 processor and less graphics power, but if you want the full punch, you might want consider selling your car.
So save up! Later this March is when you'll be able to get take Dell's powerful Precision M4500 for a spin.
