Dell Precision 5510 Workstation Review

 

XPS 15 for pros. Dell's mobile Precision 5510 workstation, an offshoot of the XPS 15, is to primarily satisfy the needs of the professional users. The main difference is therefore Nvidia's Quadro M1000M that shows its strengths, particularly in...

load operating noise, power supply's tight capacity, performance throttling in battery mode, CPU performance throttling under full load, Dell Premier Color, price

Dell has created an extremely appealing office device with the Precision 5510. In addition to eye-catching features that are primarily due to the slim build and high-quality materials, the build quality and casing stability are also highly impress.

Dell Precision 15-5510 review: A slimmer, lighter, faster mobile workstation

 

Dell's slimmed-down Precision 15-5510 delivers the power you need for professional-level design work, even if its modest battery life means that it's still essentially an office-bound desktop replacement system.

Xeon CPU and Quadro GPU deliver excellent performance ; Slimmer and lighter than most mobile workstations ; Bright, colourful 4K display ; Thunderbolt 3.0 interface for AV storage devices

Limited battery life ; Requires adapter (included) for Ethernet connectivity ; Watch out for BIOS updates

Dell Precision 5510 Review

 

With its XPS 13 and XPS 15 consumer-focused notebooks, Dell found a winning laptop formula: pack powerful components into a beautiful, slim chassis, and use a vibrant Infinity display with almost no bezel. With an optional 3840 x 2160 display, a...

Gorgeous, bright display; Discrete graphics; Attractive body; Blazing-fast SSD

Awkward webcam placement; Modest battery life

Dell Precision 5510 review – the portable workstation

 

Dell's Precision 5510 is one of the nicest 15-inch laptops I've ever got my hands on, bundling fast hardware and an awesome display in a sleek and compact body. But it doesn't entirely deliver as a workstation, while its high price-tag make it a tough...

looks amazing and it's very well built; the UHD screen is splendid; bundles fast hardware; optimized hardware and drivers for specific applications (CAD, Maya, 3DS Max, etc); highly configurable

the CPU throttles on battery, but also in high-loads while plugged in; the keyboard is shallow and minimalist for a workstation; somewhat limited IO; noisy under load; EXPENSIVE

Dell Precision 5510 review

 

An XPS 15 that's had a workstation makeover

Compact dimensions ; Superb 4K display ; Fast CPU and graphics

Shallow keyboard ; Windows 7 not designed for touch ; Poor battery life

Dell has given the XPS 15 a workstation-style makeover, and it's ready to do business. Just make sure you have a spare external battery pack, because you'll need it.

Dell Precision 5510 Review

 

This machine isn't for the average consumer, meant for professional, hardware-intensive tasks like 3D simulation, modelling, raw video editing and animation tasks. It's not an ideal gaming machine, but meant for specific industry tasks. If you can...
