Reviews for the Dell Precision 5510

82.9% Dell Precision 5510 Workstation Review | Notebookcheck
XPS 15 for pros. Dell's mobile Precision 5510 workstation, an offshoot of the XPS 15, is to primarily satisfy the needs of the professional users. The main difference is therefore Nvidia's Quadro M1000M that shows its strengths, particularly in engineering software and certified applications. We have examined just how well the Precision 5510 really suits professional users.
Hands on: Dell Precision 5510 review
Source: Techradar English version
It must have been easy for Dell to convert the XPS 15 into a workstation, such was its initial qualities. The Precision 15 5000 is solidly-built, surprisingly compact and lightweight for its size and comes with a fantastic display. We suspect that, like the XPS 15, the Precision 15 5000 will only seriously suffer in the department of battery life due to the power-sucking 4K screen. Still, for business users looking for a capable laptop that ships with the familiar surroundings of Windows 7, the Precision 5510 should rank highly.

80% A Solid Travel Laptop
Source: English version
Finally, what are my conclusions about the Dell Precision 5510 laptop? My fingers quickly adapted to the keyboard and the 5510 proved to be a better traveling companion compared to the Latitude E5570 thanks to the smaller overall size and weight while not losing any display size. The travel functionality is further improved by the fact the high capacity battery provides at least 10 hours of light use.

The Dell Precision 15 5000 Series (5510) is a well-crafted mobile workstation, boasting cutting-edge technology and premium materials. At $2,603 (as tested), its build quality is impressive at every turn, with a nice metal body and a carbon-fiber keyboard deck. This is highlighted by the brilliant 4K touch display, which is one of the sharpest and most impressive screens on any laptop we've seen. You also get a USB-C port with Thunderbolt 3, and speedy performance, which makes it an excellent fit for on-the-go professionals who need to complete intensive projects.

Dell Precision 15 5510 Mobile Workstation Review: Pro Power And Style
Source: Hot Hardware English version
Although style may be lower on the list of priorities for some folks buying a commercial laptop, it certainly doesn’t hurt that the Dell Precision 15 5510 is such a classy, premium-built machine. The aluminum exterior and carbon fiber palm rest make for a professional look, and the slim profile adds to its pro vibe.

This machine isn’t for the average consumer, meant for professional, hardware-intensive tasks like 3D simulation, modelling, raw video editing and animation tasks. It’s not an ideal gaming machine, but meant for specific industry tasks. If you can afford it, we highly recommend it.

Dell's Precision 5510 is a premium 15-inch workstation that offers powerful performance, an eye-popping ultra-HD screen and an attractive, lightweight body. If you don't need the power of a workstation but still want a 15-inch computer with the beauty of the Precision 5510, check out the Dell XPS 15, which is almost exactly the same on the outside but offers better battery life.
