Dell intends to challenge Apple’s MacBook Pro by launching its own high-end Precision M3800 rumored to have 3200 x 1800 pixel resolution on a 15.6-inch display. Specific details about this laptop is still unknown but pundits who claimed to have seen it were impressed with its powerful hardware attributes.
Inside the hood sits Nvidia’s new Quadro K1100M GPU with 2GB dedicated memory, a quad-core Intel Core i7-4702MQ processor that is backed with up to 16GB RAM. There are storage options to choose from: either a 1TB of standard HDD or a 512GB SSD.
Other specs include a Windows 8 OS, 4 x USB 3.0 ports, HDMI, SD card reader, a separate Ethernet adapter and probably a 61Wh or 91Wh battery unit. It measures 18mm-thin and weighs 4.5lbs. In addition, consumers will have the chance to choose a low-res panel configuration at 1920 x 1080 full HD. Just so you know, the 15-inch Apple MacBook Pro has a 2880 x 1800 display resolution , which is impressive; but with the M3800’s panel, Dell is certainly determined to take MBP’s throne.
The Dell Precision M3800 will set you back $1800 (BHD 680) for a non-touchscreen, matte black model. Official launch date is still unknown though more details are expected to come in the coming weeks.
