Reviews for the Dell Precision 14 5470, i7-12800H RTX A1000
There was a time when salespeople were all given the same laptop while executives received something more expensive for no practical reason. These days users are more stratified on the performance levels they will need, and the Dell Precision 5470 is pitched at those designated as power users. Starting at around $1670 for an I7-powered model with 32GB of DDR5 and 1TB of NVMe storage, it is possible to bump this up to over $2750 merely by increasing the drive to 4TB.

As I mentioned earlier, the Dell Precision 5470 is its smallest mobile workstation, which sets it apart from the competition. The top-quality build, super power and incredible battery life, all packed into such a slim 14-inch design, makes it one of, if not the, in my opinion, best options for taking professional-level performance on the go. There are, of course, factors to consider. Trade-offs for its portability mean less power than in other larger models, and anyone wanting to run the most demanding, graphics-intensive applications might need to look elsewhere. But when you take everything this little machine has to offer, and how long it can deliver it in one go, it's up there as one of the best mobile workstations available. Mini but mighty: the Dell Precision 5470 might not look like much, but its compact design, excellent battery life and incredible power make it arguably one of the best mobile workstations around.

We also have to mention the battery life. Yes, the display is small, but the hardware is pretty power-hungry. This makes it tough for the battery, but thankfully, here you get a 72Wh unit. It lasts for 10 hours and 30 minutes of either Web browsing, or video playback. So if you don’t have anything intensive to work on, it will definitely last you an entire workday. Unfortunately, the memory is soldered to the motherboard. Not that we expected anything else – after all, this is one of the most portable workstations on the market. On the bright side, you can configure it with 64GB of LPDDR5 RAM out of the factory. Another seeming bummer situation is revolving around the port selection. You get four Thunderbolt 4 connectors and a MicroSD card slot. This means no USB Type-As or HDMI on there. However, Dell provides a USB Type-C to Type-A and HDMI dongle inside the box. After all, the XPS-like visuals, the fantastic build quality, and the comfort of use make the laptop a good purchase. It is a great little machine for people working with not-so-complex 3D manipulation, photography, and videography. If the high price is not too offputting for you, the laptop is really worth it. Again, that is if you are in the right niche and if you’ve decided to skip the 14-inch MacBook Pro.

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.
The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
