The new Precision M4500 has been introduced by Dell for all of us not wishing to have a high-end 17-inch M6500. Although you may think that there will be compromises this should not be the case as the all new 15.6-inch laptop commands a 16:9 widescreen, the 1920 x 1080 display is backed up by NVIDIA Quadro FX 1800M or 880M graphics.
You will also have your choice of Core i5 or Core i7 processors right up to the Core i7-920XM Quad Core Extreme Edition. The M4500’s options include, a 64GB SSD mini card for dual drive configs without the loss of the optical drive, a HD+ sRGB LED screen with 100 percent colour gamut, multitouch trackpad, a 3 megapixel camera, Precision ON, a multi-carrier-friendly Gobi 2.0 wireless chip, and a backlit keyboard.
With a weight of only 6 pounds and thickness of 1.1-inches it makes a very attractive option for us on-the-go regular-sizers, also for those wanting more a 9 cell battery option is available to give you that extra bit of juice (Up to 7 Hours and 40 minutes). You will get even more battery-life with the under half inch thick 12 cell battery slice.
The M4500 should be out in the “coming weeks” although exact prices have yet to be confirmed, rumors suggest less than $1,700. Read more about this story in Engadget.
