Dell Precision M4500 2.0GHz 8GB 250GB Win 7 15.6" Notebook (Refurbished)

  • Summary: I've had many laptops. This is the highest spec (i7, 8gb, etc.) that I've owned, so I was looking forward to a solid, well-performing machine. This is the worst machine I've ever had (and my first/last Dell). It is way slower than my Toshiba i3 with 4gb, I mean really, really, slow. It takes 2 minutes to load Outlook! I let the 30 day return window go by unfortunately, but I already had to return this once due to poor shipping issues. I guess I'm stuck with it.

  • Summary: The description said it was an M4500 with 2.0Ghz 920 processor and 8 gig of RAM. First laptop received was 840 processor with 4 gig of RAM. Returned and they sent another one. Second unit had a 1.73Ghz 620 processor. It did have the advertised 8 gig of RAM. During the process they changed the item description on their webpage from 920 to 620. Very dishonest. I know these are slight differences to some but to an engineer specs are specs.

  • Summary: Thanks to another reviewer, I knew this model is not exactly as described but still really great for the price. Cosmetically looks like new except that an incorrect and well-used power cord was sent. Sent with a 500gb hard drive, which to me helps make up for it being a Q 840 and 1.87 ghz (again, not exactly as described). Only neg is low-end battery capacity (approx 1.5 hours). Wish the refurb process had removed the previous user name and networking info.

  • Summary: I love Dell products, and have used the Precision desktops in the past. I was a little concerned about the quality because it was a refurbished laptop, but I am extremely happy with it, and the price is amazing! The price of this laptop new can be up to over $2000! I work in IT, and this is one of the nicest Dell laptops I have ever used.

They don't make them like this anymore, a gem!

  • Summary: In comparison to the Dell 6500: This one is one size smaller, still has room for a half size ssd, gives you a choice to take out the cdrom drive and install a 2nd hdd in its place, a brilliant screen, i7, or i5 intel, both very capable of running cad software, or gaming, if that's your desire...excellent sound system totally flexible bios, excellent battery life..it is truly a Mercedes among laptops....

  • Summary: I am very pleased with the build quality and performance. I should point out, though that the one I received actually had an i7 Q 820 rather than the 920xm advertised, though this isn't much of an issue since they are virtually equal in performance. Also, to anyone buying this laptop, I would recommend installing the official dell touchpad drivers (just search google for "precision m4500 drivers" and it will be one of the downloads on the first page) as soon as possible,...

Dell Precision M4500

11 October 2011
  • Summary: Il notebook Dell Precision M4500 ha un costo da capogiro, circa duemila euro se equipaggiato a dovere, ma come tutti i prodotti di questa casa è possibile assemblarlo tramite Internet prima dell’acquisto in modo da soddisfare le proprie esigenze lavorative. Anche il servizio assistenza non è da meno, tre anni di garanzia che includono l’intervento di un tecnico a domicilio.
  • Pros: Grafica veloce, assistenza, configurazione su misura
  • Cons: Bisogna scegliere una Cpu i7 per avere il massimo, autonomia batteria

Ottimo supporto su Linux

  • Summary: A parte lo scrolling con il touchpad (risolto al momento abilitando l'emulazione con il tasto centrale), tutte le altre periferiche funzionano senza problemi su Linux.
