Dell Intros Affordable Mobile Workstations
KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (June 18, 2014) – Dell today introduced a new mobile workstation category with the Dell Precision M2800, a 15-inch mobile workstation offering ISV-certified and optimized performance and dependability at a breakthrough price. Starting at RM 5,188, the lowest price available for 15-inch mobile workstation, the Dell Precision M2800 helps to bridge the gap between business-class laptops and mobile workstations by offering an affordable ISV-certified system with professional graphics and processors. Engineers, designers and video editors now have access to the right tool to perform their critical functions with the speed, accuracy and reliability of a Dell Precision workstation.
“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 KT Ong, general manager, Consumer and Commercial Business, Dell Malaysia. “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.”
Offering workstation-class performance in a mobile form factor, the Dell Precision M2800 can be configured with fourth-generation Intel Core i5 and i7 processors, AMD FirePro W4170M graphics with 2GB¹ of dedicated GDDR5 video memory, up to 16GB¹ of system memory and up to 1TB² of storage to run graphic and data intensive workloads seamlessly in the office or with clients on-site. Delivering amazing clarity for detailed work, the Dell Precision M2800 comes with a 15.6-inch UltraSharp display available in HD or FHD (1920 x 1080), external multi-monitor support and docking compatibility to simplify the transition from the road to a desk-based workspace.
To maximize performance of CAD, digital content creation and editing software, the M2800 will be ISV-certified for leading applications such as Autodesk AutoCAD, Inventor and Revit, Dassault Systèmes Solidworks, PTC Creo, among others. In addition, the M2800 comes with Dell Precision Performance Optimizer (DPPO) which automatically adjusts system settings for optimizing specific applications.
“Prior to the Dell Precision M2800, many AutoCAD users were running their software on a non-professional workstation due to budgetary constraints,” said Amy Bunszel, vice president of AutoCAD products, Autodesk. “Now our customers will be able to upgrade to a workstation-class system that has been tested, optimized and certified for AutoCAD, increasing performance for minimal cost.”
The Precision M2800 is available today from Dell and its channel partners starting from RM 5,188 (Core i5).
