If you're looking for a workstation with the ability to take on demanding tasks on the road, the Dell Precision 7540 is the mobile workstation for you. It's a plethora of ports, a robust processor and an incredibly vibrant display that's perfect for watching movies and editing photos. Plus, it comes with a three-year warranty, and Dell's on-site repair and support service.
The Precision 7540 is a 15-inch workstation that's more portable than many of the other laptops in its class. With a full-size keyboard and clamshell form factor, this is a workstation that's easy to move around with. In addition to a powerful processor, the Precision 7540 also features a full-size LED backlit keyboard, a touchscreen display, and a variety of ports.
The base model has a 2.5GHz Intel Core i5-9400H processor, 8GB of RAM, a 500GB 7,200-rpm hard drive, and a 1920x1080 display. For an even more powerful system, opt for the eight-core 2.4GHz Intel Core i9-9980H Coffee Lake CPU.
The Precision 7540's cooling system is designed to keep the laptop cool, even under heavy load. It includes a dual-fan system and a curved front edge, which improves airflow and prevents the laptop from overheating.
The Precision 7540 offers great battery life. On our SPECapc SolidWorks benchmark, it scored a very impressive 97 watt-hour Lithium Ion Battery. It also managed a solid 7 hours and 24 minutes on our Laptop Mag Battery test.
Unlike many mobile workstations, the Precision 7540 remains relatively quiet while running heavy compute loads. However, the fans can get loud when spinning at full speed.
