Dell maintains the same design that has been introduced in previous installments of their mobile workstations. With a square shape and very sturdy body that resembles an industrial design that escapes the trend of manufacturers to make equipment lighter and increasingly attractive. Despite its label portable, this team has a considerable weight of 2.88 kilos and a thickness of about four centimeters that will make it more difficult to transport and handle.
