The time has come to upgrade from my trusty M4300 laptop. My assemblies have grown to the point where somedays I see more hourglass than cursor.
The M4600 is a pretty clear candidate, but how long in the tooth is it and when would a replacement be due? What other machines should I be considering? About my only special requirement is a docking station.
I've found Dell laptops to be excellent, this one has a replacement keyboard/touchpad (warranty), one replacement battery and one dead screen pixel in 5 years.
How much ram are people realisticly using? My worst assembly is about to have about 2000 parts. Currently I'm limited to 4gb and still running XP32. Still running SW2009 but considering subscribing again.
