Dell Precision M4500 review

 

A powerful graphics workstation with a stunning screen, but its flaws are prominent

Pleasingly powerful ; Stunning screen ideal for professional use ; Great build quality and keyboard ; Surprisingly capable battery life ; Impressive stereo audio performance

Overheats extremely quickly ; Keyboard is set too far back ; Ports and features are limited

Dell's laptop range covers a broad spectrum of consumer and business requirements, with its Precision range comprising its most powerful high-end mobile workstations.
