The Dell Precision 15 5510 is a bestselling workstation that has been praised for its NVIDIA Quadro M1000M graphics card, its super sharp Full-HD display and for its relative thin design. But it only has an Intel Core i5 processor and 8GB of RAM. We recommend upgrading the RAM to a minimum of 16GB. The 7200rpm mechanical hard drive offers improved speeds, but with only 500GB of storage space it doesn’t offer much space for larger design or animation files. While many other workstation laptops cost over $3000, the Dell Precision 15 5510 Workstation costs less than $1400, leaving room in your budget for more RAM and more storage space.
