PARK CITY, UT – Dell has updated the Dell Precision M3800, said to be the thinnest and lightest true 15-inch mobile workstation.
Dell has incorporated new features into its flagship mobile workstation, adding a 4K Ultra HD touch display option, introducing Thunderbolt 2 technology and offering an Ubuntu-based developer edition, among other updates.
The Dell Precision M3800 is available now with 4K Ultra HD (3840x2160) resolution and IGZO2 technology on its vivid 15.6-inch UltraSharp touch display made with Corning Gorilla Glass NBT, delivering rich, saturated color and stunning brightness, and enabling customers to view their content in even greater detail than was possible before. With more than eight million pixels, the 4K Ultra HD screen option is the highest resolution panel available on a 15-inch mobile workstation today, boasting 3.4 million more pixels than the Retina display on the Apple MacBook Pro 15-inch and allowing customers to experience 59 percent higher resolution. The Dell Precision M3800 display also features ten-finger multi-touch, providing customers with an intuitive way to interact with the workstation.
Dell is expanding its ecosystem by adding a Thunderbolt 2 port to the Dell Precision M3800, so users can take advantage of transfer speeds up to 20Gbps, enabling viewing and editing of raw 4K video, while backing up the same file in parallel. Intel’s Thunderbolt 2 technology delivers the fastest, most versatile connection, simultaneously supporting high-resolution displays and high-performance data devices through a single, compact port.
As film, animation and design projects often require managing large graphic and data-intensive files on-the-go, Dell has added additional storage options and increased total available internal storage on the Dell Precision M3800 up to 2TB, which is double the solid-state drive (SSD) storage capacity offered by the Apple MacBook Pro. Boasting the same unmatched portability and sleek design as the previous generation, the new Dell Precision M3800 has a starting weight of just 4.15lbs (1.88kg) and a form factor that is less than 0.71 inches (18mm) thick. Packed with a 4th generation Intel Core i7 quad-core processor, professional grade Nvidia Quadro K1100M graphics, and up to 16GB of memory, the system delivers the power necessary to handle even the most demanding applications and workloads.
The new Dell Precision M3800 mobile workstation is available starting today for a starting price of $1,699.
