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.


At Lifehacker, we want to better understand how speedy workstation PCs are used by Australians for work.

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.
