Reviews for the Dell Precision 3000 3551
The Precision 3551 is one of the least expensive mobile workstations you can find with a vPro-enabled 10th gen Intel Core i9 CPU. Ports and features are commendable so long as you're okay with the dull visual design.

Suitably configured, the Precision 3551 can be a fine entry-level workstation, but besides sending a suboptimal AC adapter with our test unit, Dell arguably sent the wrong processor—unless you're crunching giant datasets, the Core i9 is an odd match for a low-end display, and it hikes the price in the process. Dell's next-level-up Precision 5550, equipped with a slightly more modest Core i7-10750H CPU and a superior Quadro T2000 graphics chip, actually costs $103 less than the 3551 here (and it runs its CPU at 45 watts, to give you all the speed you paid for).

The Precision 3551 is a decent workstation that will meet the day-to-day needs of business professionals. The Precision is a great document pusher, allowing users to work with basic graphic requirements needed for most office settings.

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.
The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

70.6%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
