Do you use a high-performance PC for work? Tell us how you use it, and thanks to Dell and Intel, Lifehacker has almost $13,000 of Precision workstations up for grabs. You could win a Precision M3800 performance laptop with Core i7 quad-core processor (valued at $4,000) or a Precision T3610 workstation PC. With six-core Intel Xeon CPU and Nvidia Quadro graphics, this desktop is worth $8872. Ready to boost your computational power and maximise work efficiency? Enter to win here.
Maybe you’re an architect using Revit, a graphics artist using Maya — or even a researcher using custom software to render visualisations with CUDA optimisation. Either way, a new workstation can help boost performance with more cores or faster I/O and improve reliability through features like ECC (Error Checking & Correction) memory.
This is why we’ve created the mini-survey below — don’t worry, we’ve made it quick and brief! We’ll also be sharing some of the overall stats we collect for some very Lifehacker-esque IT Pro insight.
To enter: The question you want to focus on: “How would a speedy new Dell Precision Workstation make you more efficient at your job?” What are your current computational pain points? We’re looking for the most insightful work-related responses.
For simplicity and fairness, our favourite answer to this question will pick up the Precision T3610 tower; the second-place winner will score the Precision M3800 laptop. Entries close 10am September 22nd. One entry per person. Australian and NZ residents only. Full terms and conditions.
