Furthermore, Precision 3540 has one of the best keyboards found on laptops, we ever tested. All-in-all there are almost no drawbacks to this thing, apart from the pricing. Plus the fact that Dell is offering a “mobile workstation” with 4GB of RAM as a standard on their Web site. If you want to check alternatives to this device, see the Lenovo ThinkPad P53s and the HP ZBook 15u G6.

Dell's Precision 3540 is a 15.6-inch mobile workstation with an exceptionally low starting price, giving you access to ISV applications but not a surplus of speed to power through them.

AMD Radeon Pro WX 2100: Entry level workstation graphics card based on the Polaris 12 chip like the consumer counterpart Radeon RX 540X. Uses 512 shaders (8 compute units) and a 128 Bit GDDR5 memory system.
Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
i7-8565U: Whiskey Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Kaby Lake but produced in a further improved 14nm++ process). The four cores are clocked between 1.8 and 4.6 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
