Dell Precision 3530

 

Dell's entry-level mobile workstation, the Precision 3530, is a powerful and configurable choice, but it's priced only a smidge below the trimmer and lighter Editors' Choice Precision 5530.

Rampaging six-core Xeon horsepower. Satisfying screen and keyboard. ECC DRAM available.

No 4K display option. Noisy fan. Only fair battery life. Just one Thunderbolt 3 port.

Bottom Line: Dell's entry-level mobile workstation, the Precision 3530, is a powerful and configurable choice, but it's priced only a smidge below the trimmer and lighter Editors' Choice Precision 5530.

inconsistent performance ; poor thermal management ; uncomfortable hot spots on chassis under load ; fan is too aggressive and is loud ; screen is dim

The story of the Dell Precision 3530 is one of compromise. Dell has recycled the chassis of the older 3520 but packed in more powerful hardware. This choice plagues the 3530 with similar problems, notably heat and noise management. Just like the 3520,...
