we looked at the Dell Latitude 13 ultra-slim laptop and today we re
going to inspect two other Dell creations, the Dell Precision M6500
notebook and the Dell Mini 5 MID.
Dell s Precision M6500 is getting ready to play in the pro league of
laptops. The model has been upgraded to fit our most modern needs and we
have all the specs and features for you. As you expect the notebook is
getting Intel s new dual-core Core i5 and i7 processors, just in case
you don t want the quad-core Core i7 version on board. Most importantly
the M6500 is going to come equipped with the latest USB standard, USB
3.0. That means a whole lot of transfer speeds is coming your way as the
M6500 is the first Dell laptop capable of offering USB 3.0 support.
Other features include a better 3.2-megapixel webcam and a 64GB SSD mini
card option while everything else stays the same. You ll still be able
to enjoy that 17-inch RGB LED display and the Quadro FX graphics
chipsets. 3G connectivity will be provided by the Qualcomm Gobi 2 3G
modem. The new configurations should be available by the end of the
month although we don t have all the prices just yet.
In case you were looking for something different from Dell, maybe a more
portable device, then you ll be happy to know that the Mini 5 has been
approved by the FCC. That s right, folks, the device has been handled by
the Commission and the okay has been given. The device will offer HSPA
on WCDMA bands II and V which means carriers like AT T, Rogers, Bell and
Telus will be able to sell it. EDGE and Wi-Fi are on board too so this
mobile internet device will connect to the Internet almost anywhere.
Pricing and launch dates are unavailable at this time but we ll be back
once Dell decides to make an official announcement.
