The Dell Precision M3800 workstation was launched over a year and a half ago to great success. The main competitor to the Dell Precision M3800 was the Apple MacBook Pro. Dell put a display on the precision that had more pixels than the MacBook, even though they were almost identical in size. Today, Dell has announced a new major update to the Dell Precision M3800L: a 4K display.
The Dell Precision M3800 is moving fast and analysts believe that it is already leaving the MacBook Pro in a cloud of dust. The Apple laptop hasn’t had any important redesigns in a couple of years and this is giving Dell enough room to flourish.
So why is the Dell Precision so much better than the MacBook? Well, for starters the new Dell M3800 workstation can be configured with a 4K display that has a display of 3,840 x 2,160 pixels, which is 3.4 million pixels than the Retina display on the MacBook. The display has touchscreen capabilities and it is made from Corning Gorilla Glass and uses the new IGZO2 technology. It’s good to know that even the 1080p HD version also has touchscreen capabilities.
The Dell Precision M3800 still has the same powerful processor: the Haswell Core i7-4712HQ with four cores; the graphics card is also the same: Nvidia Quadro K1100M graphics. Aside from Windows 7, Windows 8.1 and Ubuntu, Dell is also providing its users with the Linux operating system.
The new Dell Precision M3800 starts from $1,649 for the model with a 1080p HD display, 8 GB of RAM and 500 GB. If you want the 4K version, with 16 GB of RAM and 256 SDD, then you’ll have to pay $2,179 for it. If you just want the 4K version of the Dell Precision M3800 workstation with all the tech specs of the 1080p HD display, then you’ll only have to pay $70 more. Also, if you choose Ubuntu over Windows, you’ll get around $100 off the initial price (this offer is only available for the lowest price model).
