ROUND ROCK, Texas — (BUSINESS WIRE) — March 9, 2010 — For those with the passion to discover, imagine and create the future, “on-the-go” access to workstation-class computing provides the freedom to work wherever inspiration strikes. This passion to create is why Dell continues to push the boundaries of workstation performance and mobility with the announcement today of the world’s most powerful 15.6-inch mobile workstation—the Dell Precision M4500.
