Speed Up Your Workflow

An 8th Gen 2.6 GHz Intel Core i7-8850H Six-Core processor delivers the power for getting the most out of demanding professional software.

Faster Memory Speeds

Work with fast memory speeds, thanks to optional memory up to 3200 MHz.

Expandable Storage

Access, transfer, and store large 3D, video, and multimedia files quickly and easily with up to 3TB of SSD storage, a feat rarely seen on mobile workstations with such a thin and light frame.

Office Integration

An integrated Thunderbolt 3 port, which operates using PCIe x4 and a USB Type-C interface, keeps you connect to most everything you need. There is also an HDMI 2.0 port.

Thermals

The cooling system features dual fans, designed to improve airflow and keep your system cool under heavy workloads.

Boot Up Faster

Launch your most-used files and applications in a flash with separately-sold Intel Optane memory. Adaptive to user needs, it pre-loads and accelerates frequently-used applications and files, providing better responsiveness without compromising storage capacity. Everyday tasks are up to twice as responsive with Intel Optane memory.

Tuned Performance

Free with your Precision workstation, the Dell Precision Optimizer delivers faster application optimization with a single click. It also automatically tunes your workstation to run popular ISV applications faster, has automated system updates, and provides analytics to address resource bottlenecks.

Customized Performance

Upgrade to the Dell Precision Optimizer Premium version, an AI-based performance optimizer for workstations. This program learns the behavior of user-specified applications, identifies optimization opportunities using machine learning, and applies performance improvements.

Secure

Dell provides data security solutions that meet security challenges and business concerns head-on to protect your most critical and at-risk asset, your data. With Dell Data Security solutions, end users can work where and how they want knowing that their data is protected. Dell Data Guardian protects data wherever it goes while Dell Endpoint Security Suite, powered by Cylance, stops up to 99% of malware.

Manageable

Part of Dell's most manageable line of commercial systems feature the free Dell Client Command Suite toolkit for flexible and automated BIOS and system configurations. Optional vPro extensions allow for out-of-band systems management.

Reliable

The Precision mobile workstation has been subjected to MIL-STD 810G testing, ensuring durability and reliability for wherever your job takes you.

USB 3.1 Gen 1

USB 3.1 Gen 1 features a maximum throughput of 5 Gb/s. USB 3.1 Gen 1 and USB 3.0 are synonymous.

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.

Windows 10 Pro

Start Menu

After its hiatus in Windows 8, the Start Menu has returned. Utilizing a combination of the traditional menu system and Windows 8's Live Tiles, the improved Start Menu gives you more information at a glance, showing notification information alongside your applications and other pinned items.

Cortana

Microsoft's digital personal assistant, Cortana, can answer your questions with information gleaned from both your device and the Internet at large. You can type or even talk with her, if your system has a microphone. Using her Laptop, Cortana keeps track of your needs and wants, and she learns over time to improve her information-gathering skills.

Microsoft Edge

After nearly 20 years, Microsoft has finally replaced its Internet Explorer web browser. With Microsoft Edge, users can write directly on web pages and share notes with friends and colleagues. It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality. Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser.

Windows Store

For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place. And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically.

Windows Continuum

Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs. A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach, but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface. You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience. But it's not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well.

Xbox on Windows 10

Gaming is a big focus of Windows 10. Xbox integration allows for PC players to match up against Xbox One players on supported games, and if you have an Xbox One, you can even stream compatible titles to your PC. Native support for recording with the new Game DVR feature makes it easy to capture and share your gameplay. The new DirectX12 takes better advantage of multi-core processors, giving games a performance boost, even on older hardware. Windows 10 also features native support for virtual reality headsets, such as the Oculus Rift.

Windows 10 Pro

The Pro version of Windows 10 includes all the features of Windows 10 Home plus many designed specifically for business users, including Hyper-V virtualization, BitLocker disk encryption, and remote desktop access. Devices will also be able to join domains and the Azure Active Directory, and they can even access a specialized version of the Windows Store featuring custom, company-specific applications.
