Reviews for the Dell Precision 5000 5470
Just because you're small doesn't mean you can't be as powerful as the big guns. The Precision 5470 utilizes the same Core i9 CPU currently shipping on hulking gaming laptops and other workstations over twice its size, but how does it actually perform?

If I had over $3,000 to spend on a laptop and needed workstation-like performance, I’d do some extra weightlifting and select a larger and heavier workstation like Dell’s Precision 5570 or even a mainstream powerhouse like the MSI Creator X16P. Sure, it would be more to lug around, but its performance would more than make up for it. And while app selection would be more limited with the Apple MacBook Pro 14, it would be another solid alternative if it ran the apps I needed. As it is, the Precision 5470 is simply too expensive to justify its limited performance. Simply put, if the Precision 5470 can handle your workflow, then you likely don’t need a workstation-level laptop. You can pick from among several 14-inch laptops and get as much portability and maybe even better performance at a much lower price.

The slimline, lightweight design of the Precision 5470 is attractive, and will appeal to professional users who need a powerful laptop that's portable enough to carry on long trips or when working outdoors. However, the Precision 5470 perhaps puts too much emphasis on portability, leaving room for improvement elsewhere. Battery life is relatively modest, even when using integrated graphics, and the FHD+ display and 720p webcam are both disappointing compared to what's offered by many of its rivals in this price range.

The Dell Precision 5470 is a mobile workstation that's far more portable than most alternatives. Between its slim 14-inch design and top-quality MIL-STD 810H build, it's one of the best options around for taking professional-grade performance on the road or to the job site. There are tradeoffs for its portability, and users of the most demanding, graphics-intensive applications will need to carry something heavier. But the Dell's exceptional battery life underscores its desirability as the most portable workstation we've seen.
