Reviews for the Dell Precision 5480

89.6% Nvidia RTX 3000 Ada performance debut: Dell Precision 5480 workstation review | Notebookcheck
Not much has changed from a visual standpoint, but the GPU update from last year's Precision 5470 is significant and worth considering for power users who want to maximize performance from a small 14-inch form factor.
80% Dell Precision 5480 Review
Source: PC Mag English
As laptops go, mobile workstations are ultra-engineered and ultra-expensive, built to run and run while tackling the most demanding tasks. The Dell Precision 5480 doesn't dazzle us with sheer performance, with a Core i9 CPU that barely outstrips a Core i7 and merely great instead of stupendous graphics, but it's miles more portable than the 16- and 17-inch workstations at the head of the class. We doubt Pixar artists would choose it for 3D animation, but architects or engineers who need to bring drawings to clients' offices will be delighted with it.

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.
