Product Overview

Dell Precision 5550 is the mobile workstation version of the company's premium laptop, the XPS 15 9500. It offers a Xeon W-10855M CPU option and ECC memory support as well as Turing Quadro GPUs instead of the GeForce graphics found in the consumer XPS 15.
Like the consumer version, the Precision 5550 is a gorgeous device with virtually no bezel around the 15.6-inch display, which is available in FHD+ or 4K. Both come with a pleasing 16:10 aspect ratio.
For a marginally larger footprint, Dell has also debuted the Precision 5750, the first 17-inch mobile workstation from the company that focuses on portability besides performance.

Sentiment Score 74%
Reviewers from notebookcheck have found the following***:
The chassis is identical to the XPS 15 9500 but in a darker matte gray tone instead of silver. The metal bottom panel is slightly more difficult to remove than on last year's Precision 5540. The Intel AX201 comes standard for Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1 connectivity. A three-year limited warranty comes standard.
