Precision 5530 (2-in-1)

Dell recently announced a new professional mobile PC lineup, which includes two models of the new 15-inch Precision 5530, the Precision 7730 and the Precision 7530.

The Precision 5530 will be available in the classic clamshell design and as a 2-in-1 workstation, allowing it to switch between a laptop and tablet form factor. Dell claims that the 2-in-1 version is the “world’s smallest 15-inch 2-in-1 workstation,” but it's still able to cram in some fairly notable features.

As for the Precision 7730 and Precision 7530, they share a lot in common, offering “industry-leading” memory and the “largest” memory capacity for a mobile workstation, according to Dell.

Precision 5530 (2-in-1)

Dell’s Precision 5530 model uses Intel’s Core i7-8706G with Radeon Pro WX Vega M GL graphics. It can run up to 32GB of RAM and offers a maximum of 2TB of SSD storage. The Precision 5530 also sports the next-gen InfinityEdge 4K Ultra HD display with 10-point multi-touch, pen support and 100 percent coverage of AdobeRGB.

Two Thunderbolt 3 ports are included with two USB-C3.1 ports. The Precision 5530 has a flexible 360-degree hinge.

Overall, it’s clear that this 2-in-1 is aimed at graphic creatives. With the 100 percent Adobe RGB coverage, Infinity Edge 4K and pen support, it seem like graphic design professionals will find this laptop to be better suited to them than to gamers.

Precision 5530 (Clamshell)

The clamshell version also has the same InfinityEdge 4K Ultra HD display as the 2-in-1. It also offers touch support and has IGZO 4 display options. It weighs just 3.9 pounds and uses Intel’s eighth-gen Core chips. You can also choose Nvidia’s Quadro P200 discrete graphics over a Geforce chip.

Precision 7730 and 7530

The Precision 7730 and 7530 mobile workstations use the latest 8th Gen Intel Core and Xeon processors. They also include AMD Radeon WX and Nvidia Quadro professional graphics and up to 128GB of 3200MHz SuperSpeed memory, which Dell claims is the “largest memory capacity for a mobile workstation.”
