I have the Dell Precision 4500. It can store anything you could ever dream of and run about 10 programs at once. But because of this capacity it is large and heavy. It can replace a desktop but doesn't make for a very good travel laptop. General comment about Dell service: I orderd my Dell online. Be very weary about having a computer delivered to your house, Dell will not listen to requests about delivery date, it just shows up when it works for them.
