Available in Platinum Silver and Brushed Onyx, the 15.6-inch Dell Precision 5530 is the brand's smallest mobile workstation. Its comprehensive list of hardware options includes 8th generation Intel Core i5, i7, and i9 processors, two IGZO 4 displays, NVIDIA Quadro P2000 graphics, as well as up to 32 GB of 2,666 MHz memory.

The new Dell Precision 5530 is finally official, but it will only be available in the second half of next month. If everything works as planned, this 15.6-inch mobile workstation should hit the market on May 22, with an MSRP starting at US$1,449. Before moving on, we must advise you to take a closer look at the new Dell XPS 9570. The Precision 5530 is basically the same, only that it lacks the NVIDIA Quadro graphics options.

Available in Platinum Silver or Brushed Onyx finish, the Dell Precision 5530 comes with a comprehensive list of hardware and software choices. These are the highlights worth being mentioned:

Depending on the market and the hardware/software setup chosen, the US$1,449 price tag mentioned earlier may vary.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
