Dell Precision M2800

 

The Dell Precision M2800 is a bulky mobile workstation with a Core i7 processor and AMD FirePro graphics. It's good enough for the supervisor or manager who needs part-time portability and for vetting his team's architecture and graphics projects.

Portable workstation with ISV certification. Powerful processor and graphics card. Removable battery.

Square pixels visible (screen-door effect) on display. No backlit keyboard. No touch capability. Small-capacity solid-state drive (SSD). Servicing requires a screwdriver. USB 3.0 and 2.0 ports are the same color.

While the Dell Precision M2800 has the benchmark scores to back up its performance claims, it's just a good, not great, mobile workstation. The screen has flaws, battery life is short, and it's bulky and heavy. This workstation is more of a system that...

Dell Precision M2800 Workstation review: A solid performer

 

The Dell Precision M2800 is an impressive mobile workstation. Solidly built and equipped with high-end components, we have just a couple of niggles: the touchpad is too small, and the top-of-the-range model's 128GB SSD should be at least 256GB.

Well specified and fast ; Solid build quality ; Great keyboard ; Good sound output

Bulky and expensive ; Touchpad is too small ; Only 128GB of SSD storage

It's not particularly portable, but the Dell Precision M2800 is certainly an impressive mobile workstation. Solidly built and equipped with high-end components, we have just a couple of niggles: the touchpad is too small for our liking, and the...

Dell Precision M2800 laptop review

 

Dell quotes a weight of 2.5 kg for the 15.6-inch M2800, but that's for an entry-level model with an Intel Core i5 processor and 6-cell battery. We reviewed one of the top-of-the-range models that is equipped with a more powerful Core i7 and 9-cell...

The Precision M2800 is big and heavy, but its performance is hard to beat if you need a high-end mobile workstation for graphics, video or 3D design. Battery life is quite respectable for such a powerful laptop, and along with Dell's three-year on-site...

Dell Precision M2800 mobile workstation

 

When you get a workstation like this, it's because you want to be able to work wherever you are, with the files and software that you need for the job. For this reason, the Precision M2800 we're reviewing here comes kitted with a Core i7-4810MQ CPU, ...

Fast performance ; Plenty of ports ; Good keyboard

Touchpad needs to be better ; Overall design is uninspiring

Solid computer

 

Have no issues with this computer. Chose this one because of the i7 processor and upgraded the ram from 8 to 16 and it runs as fast and smoothly as I can ask for. Able to run multiple programs simultaneously with no issues. Also not a fan of Windows...
