Dell Precision T5500 workstations are specifically designed for graphics-intensive professionals who need lots of processing power. Nonetheless, they're small in size and the prices begin at very reasonable levels. Typical of high-end computers, adding...

If you need monster storage, the Dell Precision T5500 has is just the ticket

The basic hard drive that’s included in the base package is not overly impressive at 160GB

DELL T5500


This machine is a great value for the price I paid. It's a little old, but with a 3 year warranty the risk is minimal.

Great parallel processing power. The SAS drives are on a PCIe raid controller. There are 6 memory slots (1GB stick in each one) and the RAM that came with my unit is ECC

The 15k RPM HDD is a little loud. The video card is underpowered compared to the rest of the machine. I consider these very minor issues

Amazing Deal


Get over the refurb, it has a 3 year warranty and it is a tower/desktop type system so you can always buy parts after the 3 years. It does come with a keyboard and mouse but with AST brand on them which isn't a big deal either. No software so if you...

Recommended this deal to several small business owners I support and one owner took me up on it. This is a great deal with a nice bonus, the 147 GB IBM SAS drive was actually a pair of 147 GB Drive with a support for up to 4 drives. Essentially setup...

Very heavy which isn't really a con but you really need to be aware this thing ways more than 4 small desktop put together. Only negative but didn't take a star away due to the free bonus SAS for mirroring was that the main SAS drive cable had come...

Wow! What a value!


The hypervisor and hyperthreading is turned off by default you can enable them in the bios setup. Hit to enter setup during POST. If you add an additional hard drive you need to enable the SATA channel in the BIOS setup. Dell is so thoughtful, the SATA...

If you are used to a lightweight PC then get ready. This is no PC it is a workstation. This thing will knock your socks off! It has server hardware (XEON proc, ECC reg RAM) with the small size of a PC. I was amazed at how quiet it is. This is the...

Not really a con but when the CPU really kicks in (rendering video in After Effects) it trips the overload alarm on my 350W UPS. I'll be getting a 500W or higher. Dell recommends a true sine output wave UPS
