Who typically uses a Workstation?
The best workstations are targeted towards professional users who need extra power to run graphics-intensive apps, but the key difference between some of the best gaming laptops around and a workstation is its GPU, as it's primarily optimised for tasks such as design and 3D rendering instead of sheer gaming performance. And workstations generally have stronger CPUs as well, like an Intel Core i9 or Intel Xeon processor, instead of the typical Core i7 you'd find in most gaming laptops.
What should I look for in a Laptop Workstation?
The best workstations are the only laptops that can handle crunching hordes of data or video-editing large files in 4K. To speed up your workflow in apps like Adobe Premiere or Blender, your workstation needs a powerful processor (such as Intel's Xeon series); a vibrant, colour-accurate display; and a powerful GPU. If you're all work and maybe a little play, the Dell Precision 7540 is one of the best straightforward workstations around.
Power at your Fingertips
Laptop workstations can be pricey but it is true that in most cases you really do get what you pay for. Prices are coming down, and Dell has released a more affordable workstation, the Precision 3540, which has high-end features without the high-end price. Designed to handle demanding 2D CAD applications and heavy Excel spread sheets. It features an optional fingerprint reader, IR camera and for the first time, a privacy shutter.
