Precision 5530 2-in-1 - Power as big as your ideas

Power as big as your ideas

Experience unrestrained innovation with the small and light, premium-built Precision mobile workstations. Built with the latest Intel® Core™ processors, blazing-fast memory and professional graphics, the Precision mobile family is engineered with the power that rivals your own ingenuity.
Precision 5530 2-in-1 - Pro performance

Pro performance. Genius creativity.

Views beyond limit. Color beyond measure. Turn heads wherever you go with an elegantly designed 2-in-1 mobile workstation engineered for ultra-mobile computing and graphics intensive programs.

Like a studio on-the-go: Create works of art on a screen that supports familiar pen-based interactions like sketching, drawing, annotating and more. And with the ability to leverage keyboard shortcuts, projects can be completed all on one machine no matter where inspiration strikes.  

Less border, more pixels: Enjoy a next-gen 15.6" InfinityEdge screen that seems endless with an incredibly slim border—just 4.7mm wide. See every detail with stunning 4K Ultra HD resolution packing 8 million pixels, for big, glorious, pinpoint-precise images—no blurry edges or jagged lines, no need to zoom in when editing photos.

Picture perfect: The display covers a wide color gamut and can show shades of color that are outside the range of a conventional panel (sRGB), so you can more precisely bring your vision to life. And with Premier Color software, every color pops with overwhelming clarity.
Beautiful from any angle: The anti-reflective screen combined with superior 400-nit brightness frees you to create even outdoors. Plus, the IGZO 4 panel provides a wider viewing angle, so you can share your screen without missing a thing.
Precision 5530 2-in-1 - Designed to power

Designed to power every project

Bring your ideas to life: Enjoy the incredibly powerful 8th Gen Intel® 6-Core™ processor with professional AMD Radeon™ Pro WX Vega M GL Graphics plus 4GB of dedicated high-bandwidth memory, giving you the best in creating and processing power in an impossibly thin machine. Get the performance you need for rich content creation, editing or viewing 4K content, high-powered gaming or mega-tasking.

Power engineered for perfection: Dell Power Manager, engineered by Dell, allows users to customize their laptop acoustics, temperature and performance based on their preferences. It also dynamically delivers the maximum power from your processor while monitoring and managing system temperatures. 

Adapts to the way you work: A built in gyroscope and accelerometer can differentiate between lap and tabletop positioning, ensuring optimal system interaction whether you're at your desktop or away from it.

Designed for creation:  Tablet mode allows you to sketch ideas, draw, take notes, and annotate content comfortably and naturally, directly on the surface. While stand/tent mode creates the ideal position to share and collaborate with multiple parties.

Design everywhere: More power doesn’t mean more plugging in. With up to 15 hours of battery life, your uber-powerful 2-in-1 mobile workstation can handle your big projects while you’re on the go.

Divine innovation

A more natural feel: The optional Dell Premium Active Pen also delivers a precise 4096 pressure sensitivity level, tilt functionality for detail shading while drawing and low latency for the most natural, accurate stylus experience. Write, draw, design or take notes with ease, then attach it magnetically to your 2-in-1 when you’re finished.

Slim and strong: The smallest 39.62cm 2-in-1* , the Precision maintains its sleek form and incredible performance with innovative approaches to power in a space-saving design.

Keys to success: The innovative MagLev keyboard design reduces the thickness of your keyboard by 24% without compromising the typing experience. First to introduce this revolutionary design in a workstation, the Precision 5530 2-in-1 keyboard uses magnets in this new design, allowing for a smaller form factor.

Premium materials: The Precision 2-in-1 is crafted from strong, sleek machined aluminum with a carbon fiber palm rest for maximum strength and minimal weight. Corning® Gorilla® Glass 4 is twice as damage resistant compared to competitive products.
