We know, we know: we're a consumer electronics blog. We get it. But when a workstation is cheap enough that even the most amateur of amateurs can afford it, it may as well be a consumer device. Today's specimen is the Dell Precision M2800, a 15-inch notebook that starts at $1,199 --- an aggressively low price for this class of product. In particular, specs include a Core i5 or i7 processor, a 2GB AMD FirePro W4170M GPU, up to 16GB of memory and up to 1TB of storage. As for the display, it will ship with a full HD 1080p display, with a 1,366 x 768 version coming later this year (at an even lower price, of course). If you need even more pixel density, we suggest you check out the Precision M4800, which can be configured with a 3,200 x 1,800 screen (albeit, for nearly twice the price). Otherwise, if all you really need is the horsepower, the M2800 will ship sometime this spring.

Update: An earlier version of this story reported that the M2800 would start at $1,199 with a 1,366 x 768 screen. It will actually come with a 1,920 x 1,080 screen at that price, with a cheaper 720p model coming later this year.
