It suddenly seems working from home is an attractive prospect for more people, or perhaps even the only option. This is how things currently stand, and we are left to make the most of the resources available to us. Thankfully, delivery is still possible in most cases, so an upgrade on your workstation could be the perfect way to set up your home office and stay safe.
Your business may well require some extra support during these difficult times. Some of this can be arranged remotely, such as consultancy or cloud services. For British businesses that are trying hard to keep things remote, a company offering IT support in London is on hand to meet your requirements within the new restrictions.
HP ZBook Studio x360 G5
This is an excellent 2-in-1 workstation that has a powerful 2.9GHz Intel processor, an Nvidia Quadro P1000 GPU, up to 32GB RAM and a 256GB SSD storage drive. This state-of-the-art laptop also has the ZBook Pen with 4,096 pressure sensitivity levels, and tilt controls with three buttons for customisation. Along with a 4K touch screen and a battery that lasts for more than 9 hours, this is a workstation that has it all.
Dell Precision 7730
The Precision 7730 from Dell has a 17.3-inch 4K, sRGB display that is one of the best among all workstations available. It also has an Intel Core i5 processor with speeds of 2.9GHz, and an Nvidia Quadro P5200 GPU with 16GB VRAM, which means it’s great for running graphically intense programmes. It is not the most portable of workstations in terms of size and weight, and the battery only extends to four hours, but it is otherwise fast and visually fantastic.
Lenovo ThinkPad P53
This is another powerful workstation that has a 2.8GHz Intel Xeon processor, up to 128GB RAM and an impressive 1TB of SSD storage. With the game-changing Nvidia Quadro RTX 5000 GPU and the highly-rated ThinkPad keyboard, this is a serious workstation to be working on. However, the battery is not as long-lasting as other models, and the laptop is slightly heavy and relatively expensive.
The company may be better known for gaming, but MSI also has a line of ‘WS’ workstations. The WS65 has a 17-inch screen, an Intel Core i9 processor and an Nvidia Quadro RTX 3000 GPU. It also has 32GB memory, 1TB in SSD storage and decent battery life. However, the build quality is not up to the usual standard of MSI, and there is only one Thunderbolt 3 port. It is also not the most affordable workstations.
Apple 15-inch MacBook Pro
Apple is a reliable producer of high-level workstations, and this model also comes with the option of an innovative touch bar to make tasks easier and faster. It has an Intel i9 processor with turbo-boosted speeds up to 5GHz and a Radeon Pro 560 graphics card. It also has a 10-hour battery life, 32GB RAM and an incredible 4TB of SSD storage. Add to this all of the superb features of the design and effortless functionality that MacBooks are known for, and you have a superlative workstation.
Razer Blade 15 Studio Edition
Razer Blade laptops are usually for gamers, but the 15 Studio Edition is a workstation aimed at creative professionals. For that extra aesthetic appeal, it boasts a powerful Nvidia Quadro graphics card and a flawless 4K display. It also has an Intel Core i7 processor, 32GB RAM and 1TB of SSD storage. This is a laptop that puts on an impressive show, but the price also reflects this.
Asus ZenBook Pro 15
High-end laptops from Asus are usually in the gaming category, but the ZenBook Pro 15 is an exception to the rule. It is a capable workstation, with an eighth-generation Intel i9 CPU that can deliver turbo speeds up to 4.8GHz, 16GB RAM and 1TB of SSD storage. It doesn’t have an Nvidia Quadro GPU so it is not the best for running graphics software, but in all other areas, it excels. It also has a strong battery life and a range of ports.
Dell Precision 5530
Another business-class workstation, the Precision 5530 has a 15-inch screen and is also thin and light, making it a highly portable option. It has an Intel Xeon processor with speeds of 2.7GHz, 32GB RAM and 512GB of SSD storage. It also boasts an Nvidia Quadro P1000 GPU and a UHD display with touch capabilities and excellent colours and brightness. However, it only has one Thunderbolt 3 port.
While most of us are finding our living and working lives seriously restricted right now, it is also important for us to stay positive and be resourceful. An excellent workstation can be the best way to achieve more without needing to leave the house, so be sure to review carefully and make the right choice.
