Dell Precision 5520 Workstation Laptop – Pros & Cons!

by birtanpublished on August 17, 2020

This is the precision 5520 and if you've seen the XPS lineup of laptops you're probably asking yourself why they switch the naming schemes to precision well they didn't this is something else a workstation in form of the XPS 15s body so instead of an eye serious CPU

You've got AC on and instead of a GeForce graphics card you've got a Quadro but that doesn't mean it's the right laptop for every professional not at all in some cases such as video editing the XPS 15 95 60 is probably

Going to be the better choice but for all of you out there who knows that your work benefits from science and Quadros this laptop is for you so to sum up the introduction this is a workstation laptop with the build of an XPS one and

That's definitely not a bad thing the XPS 15 is as you long time followers know an amazing laptop that I've been praising for such a long time now and one of the reasons for all that praise has always been because of its awesome

Build quality and design which obviously is identical right here on the precision 5520 so in this video I figured instead of making a regular old boring review I'll talk about some of the pros and cons that came up during my use of the

Laptop so I'll start with the aforementioned Pro its build quality and design and to be honest I could really go as far as to say that this is one of the best built and designed laptops in the Windows market it's got that

Beautiful bezel s infinity edge display which is available in two variations you've got a normal 1080p one and then also a 4k touch one both are IPS panels and the colors on them look great the 55:20 has aluminum top and bottom

Panels and soft touch coating on the carbon fiber design visible after opening the laptops clamshell so it's definitely a futuristic or at least modern looking laptop I also like the keyboard and trackpad actuation on the

Keyboard is on point it's got media control keys and a nice spacious layout however I would have liked it to have a deeper press but you can't have everything can you and ask for the trackpad it's good but not great

And as far as I'm concerned no windows laptop out there has a great trackpad those are for the moment sadly exclusive to the Apple platform but if we're not comparing it to an Apple device and just windows ones I've gotta say it's without

A doubt one of the better ones battery life is also pretty good that is if you opt for the one with the 1080p display I've heard that battery life on the 4k touch option is horrible and that's logical the laptop has to crunch four

Times the pixel count and also respond to touch moves but it's beautiful so you're in quite a dilemma here as to which display to choose but I'll try to narrow it down for you your decision depends on whether you want a much

Better battery life or if you want a much cooler display now that's your call personally I choose the battery life because the 1080p display is already looking pretty good and for the last pro I'll mentioned let's take a look at the

I/o but before we do that I wanna mention that these are by no means the entire list of pros nor cons and you will notice more when you've got the laptop yourself however I feel like these I'm mentioning in the video are

The most important ones all of the other stuff is just mid picks so the i/o on the left you've got power in super speed USB HDMI USB type-c with Thunderbolt 3 and a headphone jack spinning around to the other side you'll

Find a Kensington lock a battery life LED indicator another super speed USB port and an SD card reader so yeah this laptop basically covers everything you'll need and if there's doubtedly anything you miss you can need to be

Added with a Thunderbolt three adapter now let's get into the bad stuff about the precision in order to make the top bezel so small they'll have to make a compromise the webcam it's placed on the bottom bezel to the left and if the

Placement of the webcam making your colleagues look into your nose wasn't enough it isn't all that good in the first place and that's honestly the main con I have with this laptop there are of course smaller net pics such as the fact

That the screen hinge is way too stiff to be open with one and and the carbon fiber on the inside shows fingerprints easily I mean it's nothing huge at all so yeah those were my pros and cons with the position 55:20

Let me know if you guys have any more questions or concerns regarding this laptop and I'll try to answer those to the best of my ability and with that said I'll see you guys in the next video peace
