Dell has released a new and largely updated version of the Precision M3800 mobile workstation, which was launched for the first time in November 2013. The updated model comes with new hardware on the inside as well as a few more improvements here and there.
The display of the workstation is the thing that steals the show this time. The Precision M3800 now comes with an optional 15-inch 4K 3840 x 2160 IGZO2 panel, which offers 282 PPI of pixel density, which is somehow a higher PPI number compared to what Apple’s 15-inch MacBook Pro Retina model has to offer. As if this is not enough Dell says the updated panel comes with 100 per cent of the sRGB color gamut and 72 per cent of the Adobe RGB color gamut. The “regular” display of the M3800 offers just Full HD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels) but even then both displays come with 10-point multitouch and Corning Gorilla Glass for added protection and sturdiness.
We are moving towards the hardware side now and the Precision M3800 continues to impress – the workstation, which is designed for portability, offers a chassis that is 8-18 mm thick and surprisingly light at just 1.88 kilograms of starting weight. The device is powered by Intel’s Core i7-4712HQ Haswell processor with four cores at 2.3 GHz (3.3 GHz in Turbo Boost mode) and has integrated Intel HD4600 graphics, up to 16 GB of dual-channeled DDR3 SDRAM, a 2 TB SSD or 2 TB hard drive and NVIDIA Quadro K1100M graphics with 2 GB of GDDR5 memory.
The new Dell workstation is available in the US now where it costs USD 1699 and more.
