Schenker offers RTX 3060 to 3080 graphics, dual Thunderbolt 4 ports and an up-to-300Hz display in the DTR 17 E21 laptop
Schenker has launched an early-2021 (or E21) update to its DTR 17 laptop. It comes with 2 choices of matte IPS-LCD display to match its product name, which are either 3840×2160 in resolution, have a 400 cd/m² maximum brightness level, 100% of the Adobe RGB color gamut and is 60Hz, or is 1920×1080, 300 cd/m², 100% sRGB and 300Hz.
Both also have NVIDIA G-SYNC, which is handy as the DTR 17 E21's graphics options go from 6GB of RTX 3060 to 16GB of RTX 3080 power. It also has 2 Thunderbolt 4/USB type-C 4.0 Gen3x2 with inbuilt DisplayPort 1.4a capabilities (albeit without Power Delivery), as well as a plethora of other ports that include 3 USB-A 3.2 Gen2s; another USB type C port that does 3.2 Gen2 speeds and nothing else; one for HDMI 2.1, and a mini-port for yet more DisplayPort 1.4a functions and G-SYNC.
Despite all these specs - not to mention its appearance, which might remind one of a slightly older gaming laptop, bulked out as it is towards its rear by fans - Schenker seems to be pitching this DTR 17 E21 at professionals and maybe prosumers instead. It has the pricing structure to drive it down this route, too, starting at €2,878.99 (~US$3,484) for an immediately-available Intel Core i7-11700K-powered, 16GB RAM SKU.
Those looking for a less expensive new Schenker laptop for their business could also consider the new WORK 15. Its slimmer build houses a 15.6-inch panel that is, again, matte FHD IPS with 300 cd/m² brightness, 90% of the sRGB gamut and a standard refresh rate. It has up to Core i7-1165G7 performance and integrated Xe graphics.
The WORK 15 has dual USB type A and C ports, one of the last of which supports Thunderbolt 4/USB-C 4.0 Gen3x2 with both DisplayPort 1.4a and Power Delivery on in this case. It starts at €949 (~$1,148) and, like the DTR 17 E21, is available from the OEM's Bestware store in the EU from now.
