Dell to launch the Precision M3800 workstation
The Dutch tech site Tweakers.net first reported the upcoming Dell Precision M3800 laptop. The existence of the device was later confirmed by a Dell representative following a request for information from Engadget.com.
Dell has only admitted the existence of a product named M3800 along with its weight and thickness (4.5 pounds and 0.71 inches). Though leaked information points to an Intel Haswell Core i7 4702MQ processor, a 2 GB Nvidia Quadro K1100M GPU, up to 16 GB of RAM, and the choice of a 1 TB HDD or a 512 GB SDD.
Other features include a 15.6-inch display (possibly a touchscreen) with a base resolution of 1920 x 1080 (which can be upgraded to 3200 x 1800), Waves Maxx Audio Pro sound, a 61 Wh or a 91 Wh battery, Four USB 3.0 ports, an HDMI port, and an SD card slot. Conspicuously absent are both an ethernet port and an integrated docking station (as seen on other Dell Precision workstations).
The Precision M3800 is expected to launch by the end of the year. Prices are reported to run from US$1699 to US$1999 depending on the configuration. We'll have to wait for an official announcement from Dell “in the coming weeks” for further details.
