The Dell Precision M3800

MANILA -- To enable customers to responds to the continuing changes in the office, Dell Philippines launched last week the Precision M3800 that allows more flexibility to users.

“As the traditional workplace continues to evolve, our workstation customers are requiring more portable systems, but can’t afford to sacrifice performance for their critical software applications,” Christopher Papa, country manager of Dell Philippines, said at the press launch at the Bonifacio Global City.

Papa described the 15-inch M3800 as a little and mean machine that delivers performance powered either with Windows 8.1 Pro (64-bit) or genuine Windows 7 Professional (64-bit) and loaded with up to 16 gigabit of memory and fourth generation Intel Core i7 4702HQ 8 threaded quad-core processor running up to 3.2gigahertz clock speeds.

He said the M3800 also has a dual-cooling system to ensure longer operating hours and has 10 hours of battery life with NVDIA Optimus technology. This feature enables the M3800 to edit a video while on a shoot, giving computer aided design (CAD) ideas to customer in style or rendering 3D animation and modeling on the road.

To enable mobile workers to store data while they are on the road, the M3800 is equipped with multiple storage configurations for two storage devices with a maximum of 1.5 terabits of storage -- one 2.5-inch drive and one solid state Mini-Card storage device.

The M3800 has a stylish, industrial-grade design with an aluminum frame and a strong, lightweight carbon fiber chassis plus a Corning Gorilla glass display with five-finger multi-touch on all systems.

In the same event, Dell also rolled out the PowerEdge T20 server designed to boost collaboration and productivity for the small office-home office (SOHO) segment.

Papa noted that a server has a major part in moving or copying files between locations because it offers faster data transfers compared to external storage, cloud storage or email.

Papa said the PowerEdge T20 will enable SOHOs to improve access to information, simplify processes and achieve more data consolidation in less time.

By operating on a centralized platform, Papa said the PowerEdge T20 eliminates potential misplaced and lost data, images and videos caused by “sneaker-net” file-sharing.

Papa also pointed out that the launch of the M3800 and PowerEdge T20 is a response to the needs of customers.

“We’ve not only delivered on customer requests but set new standards for both mobile workstations and entry-level server,” Papa said.
