On the whole, the Dell Precision M3800 is a good mobile workstation with a very nice, high-resolution screen. But the HP ZBook 14 remains our Editors' Choice for mobile workstations, due to its IT-friendly features, like easy access to internal components, and better portability for about $500 less.

80% Dell Precision M3800 review Can powerful and portable successfully mix? Dell thinks it has a working combination

These problems prevent us from declaring the Dell Precision M3800 the last word in mobile workstations. They very much affect the overall experience of using it, and even if you don't regularly use software that refuses to play nicely with high-DPI displays, you'll still encounter the issue now and then. In all other respects though, the Dell Precision M3800 is brilliant. The only thin mobile workstation that rivals its performance, with a discrete graphics card, is the HP ZBook 14 although it's not as thin and only has a dual-core processor, not a quad-core.

Dell has done well to pack usable amounts of workstation power into such an attractive lightweight package and, while we’re still not sure about the benefits of high-DPI displays, the quality on offer is superb. Our biggest worry, however, concerns future-proofing: the slim chassis compromises on easy upgradability, and the lack of Thunderbolt limits external expansion. If you can live with those compromises, you’re unlikely to be disappointed; the Precision M3800 is as stylish and speedy as Windows mobile workstations come. However, there’s definitely room for improvement.

Dell's Precision M3800 aims make workstation laptops desirable by doing away with bulky, ugly chassis in favour of thin and light designs. A brilliant workstation laptops which balances great design with power. However, it could have better battery life and it is expensive.

The Dell Precision M3800 is a great laptop with superb desktop-like processor performance, a powerful GPU and a truly gorgeous thin-and-light design that we think has a real edge over the majority of laptops on the market today. Although there are more powerful laptops with faster graphics cards, these are much bigger and heavier, necessary due to the cooling and energy requirements of hefty GPUs.

80% Dell Precision M3800 review: incredible performance from a thin and light laptop, with superb build quality
Source: PC Advisor English
We have mixed feelings about the Dell M3800. It squeezes incredible performance into a thin and light chassis, with superb build quality. But its poor battery life is unacceptable, and there's no easy fix for the DPI issues in some Windows desktop software. There are also a few niggling issues such as slow 802.11ac wireless performance. We'd recommend trying it out first with older desktop software before making your mind up whether this is the mobile workstation for you.

The Dell’s stunning screen makes a fantastic first impression thanks to Retina-beating pixel density that’s able to match Apple’s finest, and the Precision M3800 continues its excellence elsewhere with superb design and build quality. The processor and graphics chip are powerful, but the ISV-certified Quadro chip and the rest of this machine’s specification comes with a couple of caveats. The Macbook’s integrated GPU, and cheaper consumer machines, have more raw graphics horsepower – and the middling battery life can’t match the MacBook.

The Dell Precision M3800 laptop is an exercise in elegant productivity. The company has created the world's thinnest, slimmest workstation. For $2,499, power users get a notebook with a powerful Core i7 processor, an Nvidia Quadro GPU and a mesmerizing 3200 x 1800 display.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  


4702HQ: Haswell-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.2 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.2 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4600 GPU and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


15.6": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2 kg: These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 12 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
