Mobile Workstation Choices

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey guys, I'm an engineering student and my zenbook just isn't cutting it with my increasing CAD workload, so I'm upgrading to a mobile workstation.

I'm currently tossing up between the Dell Precision 5540 and a gen 2 Lenovo P1, both with 32GB of ram, Xeon 2276 processor, and 1.5 TB of SSD storage

Any advice, or opinions, on which to choose would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

you need quadros or similar for your CAD workload?

 

because you  can really just skip Xeon and grab an 8 core 4900hs or 4800h. like a G14.

If those are the only two choices I’d say Dell simply for the less awful support if you need warranty service. They also have onsite repair contracts for their business machines where they’ll come to you to fix it if you pay a little extra at checkout.
