Dell launches home server PowerEdge T20 and workstation laptop Precision M3800


Dell Philippines has launched the mobile workstation 15-inch Dell Precision M3800 and the entry level single processor server the Dell PowerEdge T20.

The two new products will cater to the small to medium enterprises, including home business.

The Dell Precision M3800 is a big screen touch display laptop that obviously look a lot like Dell’s consumer laptops. It is an ultrathin laptop powered by the latest Intel Core i7 processor and offers work-station class performance.

The Dell PowerEdge T20 will enable users to consolidate data and applications from multiple devices onto a single server, where they can be shared more efficiently.

With the launch, Dell has signified its intention to provide IT hardware and solution to this segment , particularly home-based businesses.

The PC market for enterprise and the medium scale businesses, including the growing home business, is still a huge potential market for big PC brands to foray into, despite the the downtrend in sales of PCs affecting mostly consumer products.

Dell is also into making PC products that adapt to the the “evolving workplace,” which require infrastructure that is more portable and power efficient.

“As the traditional workplace continues to evolve, our workstation customers are requiring more portable systems, but can’t afford to sacrifice performance for their critical software applications. A server is imperative in saving time when moving or copying files between locations, since they offer faster data transfers,” said Christopher Papa, Dell Philippines country manager.

“With the introduction of the Precision M3800 and PowerEdge T20, we’ve set new standards for both mobile workstations and entry-level server.”
