Dell launched the Dell Precision M3800, a 15-inch mobile workstation that the company says is its thinnest and lightest release.
Less than three-quarters of an inch thin (18 mm) and starting at 4.15 lbs. (1.88 kgs), the unit features dual-cooling and up to 10 hours and six minutes of battery life with NVIDIA Optimus technology.
It is available with Windows 8.1 Pro (64-bit) or genuine Windows 7 Professional (64-bit) and is loaded with up to 16GB of memory and fourth-generation Intel Core i7-4702HQ 8 threaded quad-core processor with up to 3.2 GHz clock speeds for seamlessly running professional software applications.
It is equipped with the NVIDIA Quadro K1100M GPU with 2GB of GDDR5 dedicated memory. To manage large data files while on the go, it offers multiple storage configurations including up to two storage devices, with a maximum of 1.5TB of storage (HDD, SSHD, or SSD), one 2.5-in. drive and one solid state Mini-Card storage device (mSATA).
“As the traditional workplace continues to evolve, our workstation customers are requiring more portable systems, but can’t afford to sacrifice performance for their critical software applications,” said Andy Rhodes, executive director of Dell Precision workstations. “With the introduction of the M3800 we’ve not only delivered on customer requests but set a new standard for mobile workstations with the thinnest form factor, outstanding performance and highest resolution QHD+ display for designing, creating and collaborating with clients while in the office or on the road.”
It is tuned and optimized for media and entertainment, engineering and design applications such as those in Adobe Creative Cloud, Autodesk Entertainment Creation Suite and AutoCAD, Inventor and Revit, Avid Media Composer, Dassault Catia and Solidworks, PTC Creo, Siemens NX and TeamCenter, among others.
It offers multiple external monitor support with the optional Dell D3000 USB 3.0 Docking Station. For customers needing access to high-speed Ethernet access, every M3800 is equipped as standard with a USB to RJ-45 dongle. It is also designed with a backlit full-size keyboard, four USB PowerPorts (three USB 3.0 and one USB 2.0), a gesture-enabled touchpad, HD video webcam and the Waves MaxxAudio Pro suite of audio enhancement tools.
