Dell is now taking orders for powerhouse Precision M4500 15.6-inch notebook

The Dell Precision M4500 is serious. Seriously powerful and expensive that is with the Core i7-920XM Extreme CPU and an Nvidia Quadro FX 1800m GPU along with a max of 16GB of RAM and dual SSD hard drives. But even the base $1,549 model still offers enough power to get most any task done with CPU cycles to spare.

But it’s up to you (and your company’s accounting department) whether you get the extreme power or an affordable workhorse. Either way, Dell is now taking orders and will start shipping out M4500’s on April 20, 2010.
