Desktop or mobile workstation?

How do you choose between form factors?


A PC is no longer a case of 'one size fits all'. While desktops are ideal for in-office applications, many firms will benefit from flexible and efficient mobile workstations.

Today's mobile workstations are more than just glorified laptops: they provide power, mobility and efficiency along with the software your employees need, making them useful both in the office and out.

So which option will benefit your business most?

Selecting a mobile workstation

With specifications that rival traditional desktops, mobile workstations are used increasingly by designers, analysts, engineers.

Thin, light and powerful, Dell's M3800 mobile workstation comes with up to 4th Gen Intel Core i7 processors, Windows 8.1 Pro and an optional QHD+ (3200x1800) display. Using the powerful hardware, it is easy to edit video or photography at a shoot; present CAD ideas to customers; or render 3D animation and modelling on the road.

With heavy-duty processing and graphics performance, the 17-inch Dell Precision M6800 mobile workstation features up to Windows 8 Pro. It comes with elite power and storage and is also protected by top notch security, including Dell Data Protection, to prevent cyber threats and accidental system loss.

Meanwhile, the Dell Precision M6700 is the world’s most powerful 17-inch mobile workstation, featuring the performance, battery life and storage needed for demanding work environments.

Upgrading your hardware

As Windows XP support comes to an end on April 8, purchasing new hardware will be essential for many enterprises. But it doesn't have to be expensive: firms can trade in old PCs and servers and get up to £250 cashback with Dell's Trade to Save program.

By choosing a Windows 8 mobile workstation, businesses can be efficient and productive both in the office and out. And with so many options available, there's no excuse not to upgrade your hardware as soon as possible.
