Dell Precision 5530

 

Dell splices its XPS 15 DNA with its Precision mobile workstation line to create the 5530, a lightweight basher with overpowering six-core Xeon and Nvidia Quadro chops and a spiffy 4K touch panel.

Remarkably thin and light. Formidable six-core Xeon horsepower. Gorgeous 4K touch screen.
