Found in: Work Laptops

Designed with powerful performance and a compact form factor, the 15.6" Precision 7520 Mobile Workstation from Dell is well-suited for those on-the-go users. It is powered by a 2.7 GHz Intel Core i7-6820HQ Quad-Core processor that allows you to run multiple applications simultaneously. The processor also features a boost speed of up to 3.6 GHz and the system's 8GB of 2667 MHz DDR4 RAM, which may be upgraded to 64GB, allows the computer to quickly access frequently used files and programs, as well as help to ensure efficient multitasking. The system's memory comes in a 1 x 8GB configuration and there are three additional memory slots available for upgrades.

The 15.6" UltraSharp IPS display features a Full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution, a 16:9 aspect ratio, LED backlighting, and 300 cd/m2 brightness. The dedicated AMD Radeon Pro WX 4130 graphics card has 4GB of GDDR5 RAM and delivers a sharp, clear picture. You'll also be able to output video to an external display using the built-in HDMI 1.4 and mini DisplayPort 1.4 outputs at resolutions up to 8K (7680 x 4320) with additional support for HDR.

For storage of your files, this Precision 7520 is equipped with a 1TB 7200 rpm SATA 2.5" hard drive, and there is also an empty M.2 slot for additional internal NVME PCIe storage. If you want to add external storage, optical drives, memory card readers, and more, the Precision 7520 offers one Thunderbolt 3 port and four USB 3.0 Type-A ports, all four of which double as charging ports. Gigabit Ethernet and 802.11ac dual-band Wi-Fi are built-in for wired and wireless networking, and Bluetooth 4.1 technology will also allow you to connect additional compatible peripherals. So that content from memory cards may be accessed, a built-in SD 4.0 card reader supports SD/SDHC/SDXC UHS-II flash media and lets users download content from their digital camera. Other integrated features include a 720p webcam, an integrated microphone, and stereo speakers.

The 15.6" Precision 7520 Mobile Workstation includes a power cord, a 180W AC adapter that operates using 100-240 VAC at 50-60 Hz, and a 6-cell / 72Wh lithium-ion polymer battery with ExpressCharge. While the installed operating system is Windows 7 Professional (64-bit), a Windows 10 Professional (64-bit) license and media are included at no additional cost. Protection is provided by a limited 3-year hardware warranty with onsite/in-home service after remote diagnosis.

General Features

Thunderbolt 3
Thunderbolt 3 is a hardware interface that utilizes the reversible USB Type-C connector. Doubling the speed of its predecessor, Thunderbolt 3 features a maximum throughput of 40 Gb/s when used with compatible devices. The connector also transmits data via USB 3.1 at up to 10 Gb/s, and dual-bandwidth DisplayPort 1.2 allows you to connect up to two 4K displays simultaneously. Additionally, you can daisy chain up to six devices from a single Thunderbolt 3 port.
SD 4.0 Card Reader
The card reader supports SD, SDHC, and SDXC cards. The Ultra High Speed Phase II (UHS-II) bus design was added for the SD 4.0 spec, which consists of an additional design enhancement with connector interface modifications to increase performance. UHS-II specs define bus architecture for maximums of 156 MB/s to 312 MB/s using the four-lane (two differential lanes) UHS-II bus and its additional row of physical pins.
USB 3.0 Type-A
The Precision 7520 has four USB 3.0 Type-A ports that operate at speeds up to 5 Gb/s and can be used to connect USB-compatible peripherals to your system, such as external storage, optical drives, printers, memory card readers, and more.
The USB 3.0 Type-A ports are equipped with USB PowerShare technology. This allows you to select how much of the battery's charge can be used to charge external devices. If you set the USB PowerShare to 25%, the external device is allowed to charge until the laptop battery reaches 25% of its full capacity, so 75% of the Precision's charge is used up. If the system is running on battery power alone, PowerShare will only power devices while the system is in a 'low power state' (standby mode).
Battery Charge Configuration
There are five battery charging configurations available, including Adaptive, Standard, which fully charges the battery at a normal rate, ExpressCharge, which charges the battery over a shorter period of time using Dell's fast charging technology, Primarily AC use, and Custom. If Custom is selected, you can also configure charging start and stop times.
Stay Cool
Dell's patented 5th generation dual cooling fans take performance and comfort to higher levels, helping your processing and graphical applications to work within turbo frequencies while keeping your system cool.
Storage for Big Ideas
Solid-state NVMe PCIe storage gives you the space to store, transfer, and access complex 3D, multimedia, and video files quickly and reliably. And with up to 3TB of total system storage, split between 2.5" SATA and PCIe M.2 storage, you'll have space for large projects.
Dell Precision Optimizer
Free with your Precision workstation, the Dell Precision Optimizer 4.0 takes the guesswork out of customizing settings and automatically adjusts them. It automatically tunes your workstation to run popular Independent Software Vendor (ISV) applications at the fast speed possible for the improved results.
Strong Materials
The chassis is subjected to and passes MIL-STD 810G testing, helping to ensure durability and reliability.
Independent Software Vendor (ISV) Certification
Precision Workstations are tested to ensure that the high-performance applications you rely on every day run smoothly. Dell ISV-certifications cover the most popular independent software applications.
Windows 7 Pro + Windows 10 Pro License
This system is pre-installed with Windows 7 Professional software and also comes with a license and media for Windows 10 Pro software. You may use only one version of the Windows software at a time. Switching between versions will require you to uninstall one version and install the other version. You must back up all data (files, photos, etc.) before uninstalling and installing operating systems to avoid loss of your data.
