Dell has updated its slimline 15.6-inch mobile workstation, the Dell Precision M3800, adding an optional 4K Ultra HD touch display, a Thunderbolt 2 port and additional storage options.

Ricoh Europe has announced a new partnership with Leapfrog 3D Printers that will see Ricoh become an official reseller of the Leapfrog Creatr HS 3D printer and other models in Europe from later this month.
Initially available in Belgium, Germany, Netherlands and the UK, with wider availability across Europe to come, this is the latest in a series of new announcements from Leapfrog this year, seeing it step into the market dominated by MakerBot and Ultimaker.
Ricoh will provide a complete package of support for customers around the Leapfrog 3D printers, including the ability to add 3D printers to existing Ricoh imaging print service contract.
Following launches in Japan, Singapore, Australia and New Zealand, China is the latest country in Asia Pacific to offer Autodesk’s Cleantech Partner Program.
Supporting clean technology innovators who are developing solutions to solve epic challenges effecting the earth, it will provide them with digital prototyping software to design, visualise, and simulate their ideas and get to market faster.
The launch represents a key milestone for the program as China is set to become the fastest growing cleantech market in the next decade.
