Dell Announces Entry-Level Mobile Workstation

Dell introduced a new mobile workstation category with its Dell Precision M2800, a 15-in. mobile workstation offering ISV-certified and optimized performance.

The M2800 can be configured with fourth-generation Intel Core i5 and i7 processors, AMD FirePro W4170M graphics with 2GB of dedicated GDDR5 video memory, up to 16GB of system memory and up to 1TB of storage to run graphic and data intensive workloads, the company says. It comes with a 15.6-in. UltraSharp display available in HD or FHD (1920 x 1080), external multi-monitor support and docking compatibility.

To maximize performance of CAD, digital content creation and editing software, the M2800 will be ISV-certified for applications such as Autodesk AutoCAD, Inventor and Revit, Dassault Systemes Solidworks, and PTC Creo, among others. In addition, the M2800 comes with Dell Precision Performance Optimizer (DPPO), which automatically adjusts system settings for optimizing specific applications.

“Many designers and engineers are not realizing the full potential of their professional software because they are using a business or consumer-class PC instead of a workstation,” said Andy Rhodes, executive director of Dell Precision workstations. “We are filling that gap by introducing a new mobile workstation at a price that lets more professionals and students maximize their software while on the go. This is the right tool to help more people design and deliver innovations faster, no matter where they are.”
