We’re in the middle of a large-scale, impromptu experiment right now. As governments and businesses across the globe take serious measures to mitigate the spread of COVID-19,1 thousands of office workers (including myself) have been instructed to work from home, many for the first time.

As people adjust to this new widespread remote work dynamic, demand for the best tools to get everyone up and running as fast as possible has risen as well. While many of the “non-essential” sectors of the economy have been put on hold, there’s still plenty of work to be done. People are in need of powerful, reliable machines—and they need them fast.

At BOXX, our goal has always been to maximize the creative potential and productivity of our customers. Even in moments like these, that hasn’t changed. At a time when so many new people are suddenly working from home full-time, we are uniquely positioned to provide the best hardware solutions to help maintain continuity for professionals who need a purpose-built, high-performance workstation now.

For those who have been required to vacate their cubicles and who routinely use professional applications like SOLIDWORKS, 3ds Max, or Adobe CC, BOXX is offering special savings and same day shipping (while supplies last) on our GoBOXX SLM Series laptops.2

Designed to excel in modeling, motion media and CAD applications, these ultra-thin laptops deliver quality performance for the architect, product designer, or content creator on the go (or stuck at home). To give you an idea of the performance you can expect, check out these SOLIDWORKS benchmarks.3 Lower scores are better.

BOXX Re-Certified Systems

If those laptops are a little out of your price range, we also offer our reBOXXed systems. These pre-owned models were re-certified by BOXXlabs and are backed up by our legendary tech support using the same high standards we use to test all our systems. For anyone who needs to get to work ASAP, these laptops are in our warehouse right now, just waiting for a shipping label.

  • NVIDIA® Quadro® P4200
  • 512GB M.2 NVMe SSD

For additional configurations (also available while supplies last), visit our website. In consideration of these trying times, we’re also including free ground shipping while extending the warranty from 30 days to 90 days, with up to a full year available at time of purchase.

For those used to working in their office or studio on desktop tower systems, you may be concerned that the performance of these re-certified laptops won’t come close to what you’re used to—but that’s where you’re wrong.

Let’s look at SOLIDWORKS again. This time, we ran some benchmarks illustrating the type of performance to expect when compared to our flagship desktop model, the APEXX S3.

 

As is often the case with laptops, there is a tradeoff due to GoBOXX SLM portability and ultra-thin form factor.  It’s also worth noting that while the GoBOXX SLM 6-core CPU has a base clock speed of 2.6 GHz and can boost up to 4.3 GHz, the APEXX S3 8-core CPU is liquid-cooled and runs at a stable 5.1 GHz across all cores at all times.

Although the GoBOXX SLM 15 does not use an APEXX S3s professionally overclocked processor, the numbers show that, in certain tasks, it performs close to our flagship model. This means you’ll likely be able to achieve similar performance in lightly-threaded applications like SOLIDWORKS, compared to our most popular, less portable, desktop workstation.

Alternatively, if you’re looking for a new workstation as soon as possible and laptops just aren’t your thing, check out our line of pre-configured Quick Ship systems which, as the name implies, ship the same day you order them.
