Dell Precision T7500
Released March, 2009
The Pros:Spacious chassis has plenty of room for expansion, offers easy access to hard drives. Can be outfitted with two processors with support for 6-12 RAM modules. Can be outfitted with up to 1.5TB of storage--many older pre-built models offer much less storage.
The Cons:Despite the number of RAM slots, actual RAM support is limited. Very dated specs not up to par with more modern workstation offerings. Graphics options are much pricier in this system than they would be if bought separately.
The T7500 is the top-of-the-line model in Dell's Precision line of desktop computers. It features a dual-socket version of Intel's business-class, energy-efficient Xeon architecture. The T7500 is highly scalable, and can be built to deliver ultra-high performance in the most complex, graphics-intensive workstation applications.
