The Dell Precision M4500 is Now Available on

Hey creative professionals, designers, animators, engineers and research
scientists! You may have seen it on places like Engadget, but world’s most powerful 15.6” mobile workstation, the Dell
Precision M4500
, has arrived! As you might recall, I blogged about the M4500 earlier this month
when we announced it at GDC in San
Francisco. Since the announcement, we have received some very positive feedback
from our customers, partners and media. Some of my favorite quotes include:

  • “For those who prefer their performance in 15.6 inches, the company has
    unveiled the ‘M4500’ the little brother of the M6500 though in almost every
    sense its equal.” – Trusted
  • “Remember the hardcore guts of the Dell M6500
    workstation? The M4500 is just like that, except at 15.6-inches you’ve actually
    got a shot at carrying it around in comfort. It’s also the most powerful of
    workstation of its size.” – Gizmodo
  • “…But
    taken solo, this really is a pretty amazing machine. Currently, the Precision
    M4500 is the only mobile workstation equipped with Intel’sCorei7-920XM
    Extreme Edition CPU and NVIDIA’s Quadro FX 1800M GPU; it’s also the first of
    its kind to offer optional SSD MiniCard for a serious boost in
    performance. The machine is designed for creative professionals,
    designers, engineers and researchers, but honestly, even gamers could use this
    on their off-hours in order to catch a raid of two in World of Warcraft.” – Hot

powerful little machine is now available for purchase on
with a starting price of $1549, which includes Intel Core i5-520M dual core
processor, nVidia Quadro FX 880M with 1GB discrete memory, 250GB 7200RPM HDD,
HD (1366×768) WLED LCD panel and 2GB of system memory. We are also excited to
report that the M4500 will soon be certified to run many of Autodesk’s new
2011 software products
announced recently including
, Maya, Inventor, AutoCAD, Softimage
and others!  I’m super excited
about this powerful new mobile machine and look to forward your feedback, questions
and comments!
