Dell Precision 3520

 

Despite bland looks, the Dell Precision 3520's top-notch battery life will appeal to road warriors, and IT managers will like its upgradeability.

User-accessible components. Optional touch screen. Excellent battery life. ISV certified.

Single USB-C port. Stodgy design. No 4K display option.

The Dell Precision 3520 successfully combines portability, performance, and upgradeability, which will please IT departments and end users alike. Its lengthy battery life means it's also an excellent choice for road warriors who are constantly away...

Dell Precision 3520

 

The Dell Precision 3520 offers strong performance and long-lasting battery life, but suffers from a dim screen and a flexy keyboard.

Dell Precision 3520 (i7-7820HQ, M620M) Workstation Review

 

Rough around the edges. With their Precision 3000 workstation-series, Dell promises lots of performance for comparatively little money. Our review update takes a look at the overall concept and checks for potential issues.

good complement of physical ports ; pretty good Full HD IPS display ; chassis designed for every-day use ; good input devices ; run times are decent even with the small battery ; good performance

The Precision 3520 definitely has its plus points. First, there's the display, which is vivid and bright and pleasing to work with. The battery life is also pretty good for a workstation and should be outstanding with the larger 92 Wh battery option....

Dell Precision 3520 Review and Ratings

 

It's not cheap (though it's cheaper than other mobile workstations aimed at crunching huge datasets or complex 3D rendering projects), but Dell's Precision 3520 is a solid choice for illustrators, computer-aided design (CAD) professionals, and others...

Good value ; Excellent battery life ; No-nonsense design

Just one Thunderbolt 3 port ; No 4K screen option

After fully recharging the laptop, we set up the machine in power-save mode (as opposed to balanced or high-performance mode) and make a few other battery-conserving tweaks in preparation for our unplugged video rundown test. In this test, we loop a...
