When you think about what constitutes a "mobile workstation," several things come to mind. Things like ISV certification, long battery life, professional graphics (NVIDIA Quadro or AMD FirePro), and sometimes a rugged design. But what about the processor?

These CPUs will be part of the Xeon E3-1500M v5 family based on Intel's recently launched 14nm Skylake architecture. They'll deliver high precision computing horsepower in notebook form factors and sport... Read more...
Before you even think about shopping for an Apple MacBook Pro for professional chores on the go, Dell wants you to give a long, hard look at its recently redesigned Precision M3800 Mobile Workstation. According to Dell, the M3800 is a superior product in several ways, and the OEM even put together an infographic showing more than half a dozen reasons why its 15.6-inch laptop is a better solution than Apple's. Assuming you opted for the optional 4K Ultra HD touch display with second generation IGZO technology, one of those reasons is more on-screen real estate. A lot more. The M3800 equipped as...

If you want to see an Ultrabook wet itself, just plop Eurocom's new Panther 4.0 mobile workstation next to one. Battery life be damned, you can't help but be intimidated by a system packing this much power in a mobile form factor. We're talking about a 17.3-inch notebook that packs up to an eight-core Intel Xeon E5 2690 processor (or six-core 3960X if you're not down with Xeon) and up to two GeForce GTX 580M GPUs or Quadro 5010M graphics chips. Those are potent combination, folks. It's also only the beginning. Depending on how deep your pockets run, you can feed the Panther 4.0 up to 32GB of DDR3-1600... Read more...

When you think of a high-powered graphics workstation, the first thing which typically comes to mind is a huge, bulky tower chassis, packed to the brim with multiple processors, high-end graphics cards, and multiple hard disks. For the most part, this assumption is still fairly accurate, as these are the components which designers and artists usually require, and they aren't available anywhere else. Thus, artists have more or less been chained to their desks and their big, perfectly calibrated monitors. This isn't to say that there aren't options for the mobile workstation user, however, they...
