Dell's Precision M2800 workstation with an affordable price tag

You might not be expecting something like this to be appearing on a webiste which mostly sheds light on the consumer electronics but when a workstation appears in the market with a price tag which even the lowest level of amateurs find affordable, then it certainly becomes worth mentioning here. We are talking about the Dell Precision M2800 which is a 15-inch notebook with a price tag which starts at a low of $1,199. Considering the class of the product, paying this price for it seems like nothing at all.

Talking about the specs, everything seems to be fine on the inside. It includes a Core i5 or an i7 processor and has an impressive 2 GB AMD FirePro W4170M GPU. The memory is quite impressive as well at 16 GB and it has a vast storage of 1 TB. And now we are moving on to the catch here. Pretty sure you all would be wondering how Dell managed to cut the costs to such an extent. So the sacrificed bit of the workstation is the display. This 1,366 x 768 screen is low resolution and poor on quality even for a price tag of $1,199. For your assurance, you can try and upgrade to a 1080p panel for your own satisfaction but this wouldnt help to a great deal and a sharp display is simply out of the question here.

If you think this is not going to push you into buying it then you can check out the Precision M4800 instead. It can be configured with a 3,200 x 1,800 screen but if you are only looking for a good horsepower then the M2800 is more than sufficient and for that you will have to wait till it ships sometime this spring.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
