On Monday, Dell announced two new additions to its mobile workstation portfolio: the Dell Precision M4800 and M6800. According to Dell, the M4800 and M6800 will be the most powerful mobile workstations on the market equipped with top-notch specs and designed to handle the most demanding content creation, engineering and scientific software applications.
The Dell Precision M4800 will be the company’s 15.6-inch mobile workstation variant. The device will be the first 15.6-inch workstation to offer a Quad HD+ LD (3200 x 1800) upgradable display option, which bests the highly acclaimed MacBook Pro Retina display (2800 x 1800). The M4800 will be powered by a fourth-generation (Haswell) Intel Core i5 or i7 processor, with four DIMM slots allowing for up to 32GB of RAM, and up to three separate storage options and optional RAID 0, 1 and 5. The notebook will also offer various GPU options including an AMD Fire Pro M5100 Mobility Pro, NVidia Quadro K1100M or Quadro K2100M, all of which offer 2GB of dedicated DDR5.
The 15.6-inch Dell Precisions will offer a magnesium and aluminum alloy chassis that measures in at 14.8″ x 10″ x 1.4″ and weighs in at 6.3 pounds. In conjunction to Dell’s standard E-Port Plus replicator, the M4800 will support a 60GHz WiGig short-range, high-throughput wireless connectivity option.
The Dell Precision M4800 will be available on September 12 with US prices starting at $1,250.
Dell’s 17.3-inch M6800 will not offer the same high-resolution option found in the M4800, but the device will offer a 1920 x 1080 resolution display option with a 10-point Wacom touchscreen. The notebook will also feature four GPU options, including the AMD Fire Pro M6100 Mobility Pro (2GB DDR5), NVidia Quadro K5100M (4GB DDR5), Quadro K4100M (6GB DDR5) and the Quadro K5100M (8GB DDR5). Similar to its smaller counterpart, the 17.3-inch device will be powered by a fourth-generation Intel Core i5 or i7 processor, with up to 32GB of RAM and upwards of four unique storage devices with optional RAID 0, 1 and 5. The M6800 will also be equipped with a dual-fan cooling system to ensure that this impressive hardware remains cool and functioning.
Dell’s flagship M6800 will also offer considerably more heft than the smaller M4800, measuring in at 16.4″ x 8.2″ x 1.4″ and weighing in at around 8 pounds.
The Dell Precision M6800 will also be available on September 12 with US prices starting at $1,500.
