Dell M6500 mobile workstation gets dual-core

Dell has sent word that its Precision M6500 pro notebook will get several new features and options. The system will now have the option of Intel's newer dual-core processors, including both the Core i5 and i7; previously, it was limited to only quad-core i7 models that justified the high $2,749 price. USB 3.0 will also be new and should make the Precision the first PC at Dell to get the 5Gbps ports.

Other options will include a newer 3.2-megapixel webcam and the promised 64GB SSD mini card, which will give the M6500 as many as three total hard drives. Most other options, such as the 17-inch RGB LED display, Qualcomm Gobi 2 3G modem and Quadro FX graphics chipsets, should be the same as before.

Price changes haven't yet been detailed, but the dual-core configurations should be available by late February. [via Notebook Italia]
