New additions to the company’s Latitude notebook, OptiPlex desktop, and Precision workstation families feature a tool called Dell Optimizer that’s designed to fine-tune performance, battery life, and more in real time using artificial intelligence. By Rich Freeman

For the first time, Dell’s 5000 series of Precision devices now includes a 17-inch model in addition to the previously available 15-inch unit. Called the Precision 5750, the larger system has a starting weight of 4.7 lbs. and a 94% display to body ratio, as well as up to an NVIDIA Quadro RTX 3000 graphics card. The 15-inch Precision 5550 weighs 4 lbs. and up, has a 92% display to body ratio, and supports up to NVIDIA Quadro T2000 graphics.

Both products run on 10th Gen Intel Core and Xeon CPUs with up to eight cores and feature 16:10 displays. They are, according to Dell, the smallest and thinnest mobile workstations by surface area in their size class.

New products in the bigger 7000 series, which are 19% smaller than the units they replace and have a 21% larger touchpad, come with 10th Gen Intel Core and Xeon 8-core processors, up to 128GB of 2933 MHz memory, and up to NVIDIA Quadro RTX 5000 graphics. The 15-inch Precision 7550 offers up to an HDR600 display and 6 TB of storage, while the 17-inch Precision 7750 has up to an HDR400 display and 8 TB of storage.

The value-priced Precision 3550 and 3551, meanwhile, target users of 2D CAD and entry-level creative applications with less intense spec requirements. The former device provides an Intel Core processor, up to 32GB DDR4 memory, NVIDIA Quadro graphics, and up to 2 TB of storage. The latter features either an Intel Core chip with up to eight cores or an Intel Xeon processor, plus up to 64 GB of DDR4 memory, NVIDIA Quadro graphics, and up to 4 TB of storage. Both products offer a selection of 15.6-inch touch and non-touch displays.

Both available now, the Precision 3550 and 3551 start at $939 and $1,049, respectively. The Precision 5550, which ships on May 28th,  and Precision 5750, which ships on June 9th, start at $1,999 and $2,399, respectively. The Precision 7550 and 7750, which both become available on May 28th, start at $1,789 and $1,999, respectively.

Calling the products showcased today “the industry’s most sustainable PC portfolio,” Dell says that all of them are registered as EPEAT Gold or Silver. A wider range of Latitude devices now use emission-reducing waterborne paint on 100% of painted parts, the company adds, while devices in the OptiPlex portfolio are now made with up to 60% recycled plastic.

Dell’s latest commercial offerings arrive on the heels of new consumer-oriented products announced last week.
