Last week, HP announced the HP Z240 Tower and Z240 SFF Workstations which are designed to meet the needs of users who require the reliability of a workstation at the price point of a desktop PC. With a next generation Intel® processor and HP Z Turbo Drive option the Z240 is ideal for customers in the video editing, MCAD/AEC and image viewing industries.
Dell today announced the release of the latest line of Precision mobile workstations, allowing “creative professionals that demand purpose-built solutions to manage their critical workloads.” The new workstations are thinner and lighter on the outside due to a design combination of carbon fibre and aluminium; while new processors and faster memory and storage contribute to the enhanced performance on the inside.
Today Dell is announcing it's new line of performance workstations, and we at Videomaker were lucky enough to get a Precision T7600 in for an early look. Even before firing it up, it's clear that this workstation was built to work. If you're getting a Mac Pro vibe you're not alone. The carved mesh front and rectangular top handle is reminiscent of that iconic look, but don't let its looks fool you. Dell has pushed functional design to new levels with the T7600, by putting user convenience at the forefront.
I just got back from the launch event for HP's new Z-series workstations, rubbing elbows with the international press (seriously--I dined with journalists from Turkey and the Netherlands on Thursday night.) We were lucky enough to get a Z800 for some pre-release testing--that machine is sitting behind me in this photo.
