Up to 16 GB of RAM on Dell Precision Workstation Laptops
I use my Dell laptop as a VMWare-based virtual lab workstation with 32 bits Linux host for (supporting up to 32GB of RAM available to applications), and I do not plan to buy a new laptop until it supports up to 16GB of RAM.
This would allow running all of my virtual LABs and working on my virtual architecture for testing and planning purposes before further hardware testing and deployment. And I need a laptop as I'm always moving. I am often working with 5-9 virtual guests, and more, some of them requiring more than 1GB RAM to work.
I know that I am not the only one in this situation. I wish this would be available until 1 year, when my Dell support will expire.
