Dell Precision 7540 laptop
Google has been hounding me for the last week or so with an offer of a Dell Precision 7540 laptop. The price is attractive at just over $1100 in the base configuration. It is customizable and I'd be at about $1400 with a 512Gb SSD and 16Gb of RAM. It happens that I'm in the market, although the need is not urgent.
I've had a few Dell Precision laptops in the past and the experience has been generally good. I'd like to know if any of you have had recent experience with this particular model.
i don't have that particular one, but an inspiron 17 7000, which is practically the same spec in terms of processing, RAM, and memory. my only complaint is the daily "invite" from dell to update it somehow or other. probably could figure out how to turn that off, but i don't care that much.
oh- i'm having problems importing shapefiles right now, but i doubt it has anything to do with the computer- more likely a carlson or windows issue.
That sounds good. Don't know anything about the brand, but yesterday I bought a Maingear brand 17.3" laptpop i7, 32 ram, 10 pro, Geoforce RTX 2060, 1TB NVMe SSD. It was $1199. I'll need to wait a while before I can say how it works.
I have a company-issued 7530 with the i7-8850 processor (six cores). Video card is NVIDIA Quadro P2000.
Runs C3D, TBC, Infinity, etc. without any issues. All at once if I really want to. I don't work with massive point clouds, but occasionally smaller ones and never had any problems.
It does have 32G of RAM, though.
I have Dell Precision 7730. 17". It works great and can handle all CAD and Scanning office programs.
But...it is huge weighs about the same as a 12 pack of Bud and will not fit in any backpack or messenger bag. Battery sucks, but you can probably get an extended life, but will increase weight. If you plan to use a dock in the "office" go with 15" or even 13" models.
