We have been referring to the 17” Dell Precision M6500 as the Dellasaurus ever since it first shipped. It’s really an object of envy because it was the first portable laptop with four SoDIMM slots. This is of course a virtualization experts dream machine.
Well Dellasaurus Rex is now on the scene and can be ordered with 32GB of RAM. No, they didn’t add SoDIMM slots. Apparently the 8GB SoDIMMs are now making their way into the channel. This is great news.
If you have to ask about price, you can’t afford it. DO NOT go look at the price if you have a heart condition. Hint, the 8GB SoDIMMs are running about $2250 each.
And for those of you that want a tricked out 15” laptop, be sure to checkout the Precision M4500 now available with 16GB of RAM in two slots. You guessed it, pricey.
They rest of us mere mortals will probably need to wait another year before those memory prices come back down to prices that could be considered. Still cool to think about in the meantime.
