Reviews for the Dell Precision 5000 5680
Dell's latest mobile workstation is one of its leanest and fastest yet mostly thanks to the new Nvidia RTX 5000 GPU. Performance-per-watt is excellent and we hope to see the 165 W USB-C AC adapter on more Dell models.

Like its rivals, the Dell Precision 5680 is expensive—although the company tells us that 99 out of 100 Precisions are bought at corporate bulk discounts rather than the Dell.com prices we cite—but we're suckers for high SPECviewperf scores. If you can live with 64GB instead of 128GB of RAM, it's every bit the equal of the Lenovo ThinkPad P16—the latter has a higher-quality keyboard and touchpad along with two USB Type-A ports. However, the Dell Precision 5680 is considerably more portable, earning our Editors' Choice award among mobile workstations.

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.
