|BeSublime||Correct me if I'm wrong, but a quick google search seems to tell me that the 27" monitor (S2740L) is IPS. I mean personally I like the quality of the UltraSharp 23" more (plus the 90 degree swivel is super handy), but I just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing something, for the sake of the thread.|

If your into VM the 16GB RAM might be nice otherwise not very useful (IMO!!!!).
More HDD space is always a nice plus....but....
I would rather have the Ultrasharp.... JMO.
EDIT: Costco Video is a GT620

Quick check best double check:
NOT an Ultrasharp Monitor

Does anyone know how the system on dell.com compares to the specs on costco.com's site (with monitor):
It looks like Costco's comes with more RAM but I could be reading this wrong. There's a $29.95 shipping charge but that could override the cost for extra RAM and for a 2 TB drive. Thanks - I'm a little rusty on computer specs!

Also most of the adapters appear to be geared towards using a mSATA drive on a "regular" SATA 2.5" port
Not to mention SSD compatibility issues
Might be a lot easier, albeit costlier, to use a mSATA drive on the mSATA port:
Or just use the other SATA3 connection for a boot disk and dont use the mSATA at all

I guess it (the Lenovo) is going back to Staples, mine is still in the box, but I bought the Kingston SSD for it so I could always use the SSD in the Dell as well.
Anyone else weigh in on this Dell with/without monitor?

But for a client.... best to screw it down than let them screw it up .....
|02-28-2013 05:51 AM|
but since it's a ssd, I just shove them into the emtpy drive bays.

4 SATA Ports - 3 SATA II, 1 SATA III
2 Optical drive bays, 2 3.5" HDD slots
1 mSATA port/mount
Soooo.... is using a regular SSD (NOT mSATA) a mounting adapter will be needed.

From what Dell tells me this 8500 has 1 SATA 3.0 and 2 SATA 2.0. In case anyone is wondering. It also has a mix of USB3.0 and USB 2.0.
Two top USB :1 is USB2.0 and other is USB 2.0 with "power share",
Two Front USB : Both USB 3.0
Rear: two USB3.0 and 4 USB 2.0
Anyone have a coupon code?
There is some controversy on the SATA configuration on this machines hard to know with certainity but it appears it either has one sata 3 or two , the second being msata although my understanding was msata was only capable of 3GBS ( sata 2)
