Powered by second-generation Intel Sandy Bridge (Core or Xeon) processors, the T1600 is touted as being 24% more powerful and faster than its predecessors. The machine is highly customizable with room for up to 16GB of memory and dual 2TB 3.5-inch SATA hard drives.
The T1600 also stands as an option for designers and others working with 3D as the workstation supports NVIDIA Quadro 2000 graphics. If 2D suffices your needs, then Intel Integrated HD graphics is the other option.
Dell also reminds us about the "tool less" chassis that opens with a single latch and doesn't require removing any screws. This is becoming a very common (and welcome) feature on both desktop workstations and personal computers.
Pricing starts normally at $829, but Dell is currently running a special so the system starts at $629. It isn't clear how long that deal will last, so act fast if you want this for your office space. For a closer look at the Precision T1600, check out the promo video below:
