The Dell Precision M6500 is Dell’s most powerful business oriented 17? Laptop. It was originally released in 2009, but it’s been upgraded over the years so that it’s more powerful than the average desktop computer. In addition to featuring a large Full HD display for accessing multiple windows of data simultaneously, the Dell M6500 features an extreme edition quad-core processor that works with up to 32GB of RAM to allow business users to literally manage 100 applications at once without experiencing the slightest lag. Mind you, these are its maximum specifications; users can opt for a cheaper configuration if necessary. Regardless of configuration (a DVD player or Blu-ray player; a regular wireless card or a 3G card; or even an optional docking station), the Dell M6500 comes with all the essentials needed to handle business. For instance, it supports every possible peripheral or external device via a bevy of connection ports, meaning there is no limit to what users can connect to it: USB/SD cards, Express Cards, external monitors, external drives, etc.).

Comparison to Dell Precision M4500

The Dell M6500 is an upgrade from the Precision M4500 for many reasons. Though it hosts the same processor and many of the same optional components (graphics card, SSD drive, Blu-ray player, WWAN), the Dell Precision M6500 supports more memory (32GB vs 16GB). Plus it has a much larger display (17" vs 15.6"), and it supports the new USB 3.0 interface standard, which is faster and more efficienct than USB 2.0.
