Workstations are supposed to be clunky machines that are always stuck inside the office, right? Well, Dell doesn't think so anymore. Check out their slim Precision M3800 laptop below.
Pogi. di ba? It's certainly a far cry from how we normally view workstations:

By definition, a workstation is a computer that's designed to manage specific tasks and is used by one person at a time. It's also normally more powerful than casual rigs. Its main drawback is its size; workstations aren't usually made for portability and mobility.
"Puwet, este, pwes ibahin niyo ang Precision M3800!" says Dell. The M3800 is basically a mobile workstation. At its thinnest part, it only measures 18mm or just a bit over half an inch thick. It also comes in a lightweight package, tipping the scales at a mere 1.88kg. With those kinds of stats, Dell claims that the M3800 is also one of thinnest workstations around.
Don't let its slim look fool you though. This one is a true workstation, which means it has computer power under the hood. We're talking about a fourth-gen Core i7 quad-core processor, up to 16 friggin' GB of RAM, up to 1.5TB of capacity, and an Nvidia Quadro K1100M graphics. It's certainly made to handle resource-heavy tasks (i.e. video editing, structural design programs) and even mainstream gaming. Hanep!
