The Dell Precision T1700 Entry Level Workstation Review: Worth All the Hype?

Posted by mediashower1

Nov 19, 2014 3:48:25 PM

When Dell announced the new Precision T1700, reviewers went wild. Is this compact workstation truly that innovative? After all, Lenovo and HP already had compact workstations well before Dell jumped on the mini wagon. As a latecomer to the world of CAD compactness, the true innovation in the Precision T1700 is not so much the size of the machine as the price. This workstation sells for about the same amount as a high-end desktop computer. Is it worth raving over?

Are Intel's CPU-integrated GPUs Good Enough for CAD? (Part 1)

Posted by cadhardware

Jul 11, 2012 4:42:15 PM

Intel had been promising that its latest generations of graphics-enabled CPUs would make CAD professionals think twice about paying extra dollars for a discrete graphics card on their next workstations. And it appears those promises are holding true … not in dramatic fashion, but valid nonetheless.

Mobile Vs. Deskside: CAD Workstations Don't Follow Conventional Rules

Posted by cadhardware

Jan 3, 2012 8:00:54 PM

A disconnect has been emerging between the perception and reality of mobile workstation sales and usage. Since its emergence almost a decade ago, I've viewed the mobile workstation as a slam-dunk when it came to replacing conventional corporate/consumer notebooks, as they are far more appropriate devices for hard-core graphics professionals. But especially recently, the buzz about mobile machines becoming more than road-warrior tools — but instead deskside replacements —has gotten louder.
