Dell Introduces Precision Laptop With 32GB RAM

Do you have some serious business going on with your laptop? Is it more of a mobile workstation then a laptop? Then you probably need a good bit of memory. The problem with most mobile computers is that they can't take as much memory as desktop, but Dell has a solution for those who crave more RAM on the go.

Dell has announced the Precision M6500, which it calls the "world’s most powerful 17” mobile workstation." Helping it make that claim is that it will support up to 32 GB of system memory in the Dell Precision M6500. It also packs an Intel Core i7 Extreme Edition processor and Nvidia Quadro FX 3800M.

Those who don't need that sort of memory could also consider the M6500’s little brother, the Precision M4500, which is now available with 16GB of memory.

Such applications of mobile workstations with so much memory are in the oil and gas field, where they can review larger slices of the earth to find oil, enabling faster and more accurate drilling to find oil and gas reserves. Other applications may also involve CAD/CAM engineering as well as work with fluid dynamics.
