Dell Precision M4500 and E6510, E6410 ready

Dell this morning formally began sales for a slew of faster-performing pro notebooks. The Precision M4500 is now ready to order and is treated as Dell's fastest regular-size notebook. It supports the same quad-core 2GHz Core i7 and optional tertiary SSD drive as the M6500 but with a smaller 15.6-inch LCD. In its base trim, it ships for $1,549 with just a 2.4GHz Core i5, 2GB of RAM, a 250GB hard drive and a read-only drive, but it comes with a Quadro FX 880M for graphics and scales up to DVD burners and Blu-ray, 500GB drives and a 1080p screen.

The company's mid-range customers have also received a surprise today as they have become the first to get upgraded versions of Dell's core Latitude notebooks. Both the 14-inch E6410 and 15-inch E6510 are similar to their ancestors on the outside except for the E6510's switch to a 16:9 ratio screen. Inside, however, they now use Core i5 and i7 chips and scale up to a dual-core 2.66GHz Core i7 in the smaller PC and a quad-core 1.73GHz Core i7 in its bigger sibling.

Pricing starts at $1,014 for the E6410 and $1,064 for the E6510. Either begins with a 2.4GHz Core i5, Intel graphics and a minimal 1GB of RAM with 160GB of drive space, but they can scale up to Quadro NVS 3100M chips, 8GB of RAM, 500GB hard drives (256GB for SSDs) and a 1080p display on the larger of the two.

    Dell Precision M4500 puts quad

    Politics :-
    Dell continued its pro notebook updates this morning by launching a new mid-range Precision model. The M4500 replaces the M4400 and, despite a much more common 15.6-inch display, has many of the performance features of the 17-inch M6500. It can run up to a quad-core 2GHz Core i7 for a processor and supports the larger system's 64GB SSD mini-card, a $220 option that gives the M4500 a fast OS drive without sacrificing room for a regular hard disk.
    student aid :-
    The system also has options for dual-core i7 and i5 processors as well as up to 1,333MHz DDR3 memory and dedicated NVIDIA workstation graphics, albeit less ambitious than for the M6500 with either a Quadro FX 1800M or 880M. Extras bring a color-accurate display that can show 100 percent of the sRGB space as well as a 3-megapixel camera and a Gobi multi-network 3G modem. A fingerprint reader is common medical school.
