The current 15" workstation from Dell has been reworked from the ground up, and offers a completely new case along with renewed components. How well Dell has accomplished bringing performance, ergonomics, and mobility into harmony has been tested by us.
*

Workstations are viewed by many users as the elite class of mobile notebooks, since they possess high performance reserves và good features, as well as satisfying other aspects such as upgradability, reliability và compatibility, khổng lồ a certain extent. A long availability of replacement parts, guaranteed software compatibility, generous warranty periods, và tư vấn services are also provided by the manufacturers, even if at a nice premium though. It should therefore come as no surprise that the basic version already costs in excess of 1000 Euros after tax.

Alone the configuration possibilities in the Dell online shop are already surprisingly elaborate, and cover a large number of individual requirements. Six different dual-core & quad-core CPUs, four displays, và three graphics cards are available for selection. With a slightly adjusted configuration the 2000 triệu Euro mark can quickly be reached, especially since even smaller features such as a webcam and a backlit keyboard require an additional expense. More affordable và better equipped models are partially preconfigured, & are available from various online retailers. Our reviewed model represents one of the higher performance configurations, và provides an Intel Core i7-2920XM CPU, Nvidia Quadro 2000M graphics, 256 GB Solid State Drive, Blu-ray, Full HD display, & much more which we will elaborate on in this Review. The price however already lies at over 3000 Euros after tax, và underscores the premium demands associated with it.


Case


*
Very stable, but also bulky case
*
The battery is loose and has to lớn stay in the case

The case, as has already been mentioned, has been completely renewed & doesn"t have sầu anything in common with the predecessor model Precision M4500, with the exception of many good features. What stands out is the metallic exterior with an unusual umber brown color scheme. The adopted materials altogether make a robust & high unique impression, although the work area surfaces are made of plastic. There aren"t any shortcomings in this area though. The palm resting area is firm, the gaps are even, và the surface feels pleasant. The same is true to a similar extent for the display lid, which can be warped a little with some force, but also makes a very robust impression. The baông xã of the lid can be dented a little, but changes on the display are not generated as a result. The display hinges are more rigid than usual, & can be operated in both directions with one hvà. The battery integrated into the front also assists in this case, since it provides for the necessary counterweight under the palm resting area.

However, the battery is also responsible for the first real point of criticism, since this sits relatively loosely in the case, và in addition contains one of the four feet. If the battery is removed the case is no longer stable and dips down towards the front right. Otherwise the base unit is very firm due khổng lồ the omission of any maintenance panels. This has the disadvantage though that the whole base plate or the keyboard have khổng lồ be removed in order lớn exchange or nâng cấp components. To reach the mass storage for example seven screws have sầu khổng lồ be removed. There is no exchange shaft for quick swapping of drives. We also found the rigid power cable which stands out towards the baông chồng unpractical, since this always necessitates a certain gap at the bachồng of the notebook.

The measured weight of our reviewed device is approximately 3.2 kilogam, which is relatively heavy for a 15" notebook. Other than this the dimensions of 376 (W) x 256 (D) x 36.5 (H) mm also exceed the usual by several millimeters. The bulky overall impression is however created by the omission of curved surfaces on the case, which at least provide for an optically slyên impression on many competitor models.

Interfaces

Following on from the good case Dell has created another highlight when in comes to lớn the connectivity. In this case almost everything that could be required is available: USB 2.0, USB 3.0, eSATA & FireWire (IEEE 1394, 4-pole without power supply) cover the usual PC spectrum completely. Merely FireWire 800 and Thunderbolt could be added for the sake of completeness, both are so far meaningless for Windows notebooks though, & therefore also not available from competitors either. For additional interfaces or peripheral devices there is also an ExpressCard/54 slot available, which is above sầu all elsepracticalfor extensions that aren"t always required.Always on board are three possibilities for connecting external monitors: An analog card đồ họa connector, which is primarily found on older displays, as well as two digital alternatives in the khung of HDXiaoMi MI and DisplayPort.

Otherwise there is also a smart card reader, an SD thẻ reader, a 2.1 MP webcam, Gigabit LAN, and of course also a Kensington Loông chồng socket. Our optical drive is made by Matshita, và can read và write the usual disc formats as well as Blu-ray discs. We also like the separate provision of audio ports, which makes the use of headsets with mini jacks possible among muốn other things.

The distribution of the interfaces has been thoroughly successful. The interfaces at the baông chồng may be slightly difficult to lớn reach, but at least the connected cables don"t get in the way và provide for a tidy desk. The same is true for the ports on the sides, which are located towards the back.

Communication

Our reviewed device has Công nghệ Bluetooth & WLAN 802.11n integrated. We weren"t able khổng lồ determine the Bluetooth không dây version, presumably this is Bluetooth 3.0 though. The Intel Centrino Ultimate-N 6300 WLAN module has three antenna"s, is able to operate in the 2.4 & 5 GHz bands, and can theoretically transfer up lớn 450 Mbit/s. In addition to lớn this the module is capable of operating over longer distances more reliably. In any case a 3G modem is separately available (Dell Wireless 5550, approx. 170 Euros), & is included in the reviewed device. If this option is selected users will have to forgo an mSATA SSD though, since there is only one socket with the full size available. The webcam required for Skype và Co. has a resolution of 2.1 MPhường, và is also not included in the basic configuration & costs about an additional trăng tròn Euros.

Security

As usual for business devices, all the security features such as a smart card reader, Trusted Platform Module, fingerprint reader, và different password options are available. In addition Dell offers various backup, data shredder, and restore services for an additional price.

Accessories

The delivery contents are easy khổng lồ oversee in light of the high acquisition price. These includes the usual Tools, as well as the Blu-ray software from Cyberlinks, & Roxquả táo Creator for the optical drive. MS Office is only pre-intalled as a starter version with limited functionality.

The docking solution options are the Simple E (452-10768, approx. 130 Euros) và the Advanced Port Replicator (452-10761, approx. 150 Euros). While the construction of these is more or less identical, the two models distinguish themselves primarily by their interfaces. The "big" mã sản phẩm offers 2x DVI and 2x DisplayPort, both have an eSATA port, and neither provide USB 3.0.

Warranty

As standard there is a 36 months warranty, which can be upgraded/extended with additional further options, và can thus be adapted khổng lồ personal requirements with relative flexibility.


Keyboard

Our reviewed Mã Sản Phẩm is fitted with an English keyboard layout (QWERTY), but otherwise conforms with the usual features. The markings on the keys have sầu a good contrast, & the special functions can be found intuitively. Thanks to the keyboard backlight, which can be phối to 5 different levels according khổng lồ personal taste, it is also possible lớn write without difficulties in dark ambient lighting conditions.

The over stop of the keys is good and quiet, with a medium key travel, & the keys provide a good pressure point, as well as conforming khổng lồ the usual standard kích cỡ. At last Dell has utilized the case width, & has integrated a number pad into the Precision. This makes the entry of elaborate rows of numbers much easier, and provides for a pleasing addition khổng lồ the features.

With the exception of the left third, the whole keyboard lies firmly và doesn"t give way. In the aforementioned area it is already possible khổng lồ provoke a visible denting with a little pressure. During the thử nghiệm this didn"t lead to lớn any limitations though, which is why most frequent typists should also get on well with the input đầu vào on the Precision.

Touchpad/PointStick

The Touchpad is medium sized, provides a pleasant gliding characteristic, và is well separated from the palm resting area. It supports the usual gestures, and can be individually configured. Those that don"t require a Touchpad can also disable this completely.

The alternative sầu of the Touchpad is the control of the cursor with the PointStick, which provides precise control. In this case it is also possible lớn configure the settings khổng lồ accommodate personal preferences.
