At a special event at SIGGRAPH 2017, Dell revealed the Precision 5520 mobile workstation, commemorating 20 years of Dell Precision workstations.
Crafted in a beautiful brushed aluminum finish, the Dell Precision 5520 mobile workstation is according to Dell the thinnest and lightest 15-inch mobile workstation on the market. The laptop features a thickness of just 0.66-inches at its thickest point and a weight of just under 4lbs for the fully loaded unit.
What do you get in such a compact package? Well, you get a choice between the Intel Core i7-7820HQ or the Intel Xeon E3-1505M v6, up to 32GB of DDR4, Nvidia Quadro M1200 graphics and up to 1TB M.2 PCIe SSD. Standard features include a 4K (3840×2160) IGZO 10-point touch 15.6-inch screen, 802.11 AC Wi-Fi + Bluetooth 4.2, and a 97-watt hour battery, which Dell claims could provide up to 22 hours of battery life for light use.
I/O on the Precision 5520 Anniversary Edition includes a DC-In power port, two USB 3.1 Type-A ports, a HDMI port, a USB-C port, a SD card reader, a lock port, and a headphone/microphone combo jack. There’s also a clever battery capacity button which quickly tells you how much juice is left in the system without turning it on.
During the event, Dell showed off the Limited Edition versions of the Precision 5520 Anniversary Edition which are all signed by Michael Dell, the CEO of Dell. However, these coveted units are reserved for Dell employees and Dell partners.
Those interested can now purchase the Dell Precision 5520 Anniversary Edition at the Dell website starting at $2,179.
