Google search for Dell Precision press releases That'll do (to some degree) as a Primary Source. --Goldfndr (talk) 16:16, 19 December 2007 (UTC)


Can we also add display resolution sizes i.e 1600x900, 1920x1200 etc? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 93.97.61.95 (talk) 23:57, 17 April 2012 (UTC)

This "article" is content-free as far as I can see and is just a list of one company's products. Deletion would be a vast improvement. Huw Powell (talk) 19:49, 27 July 2014 (UTC)

I disagree; this should NOT be deleted. There is a lot of good technical information here, gathered in one place, that would otherwise take a good while to locate. The option should be left open in the future for someone to add more "article-like" prose if they want. By your same argument, should we just delete the Xeon page altogether, since it's "just a list of one company's products"? I think not. Nks87 (talk) 21:08, 7 October 2014 (UTC)

I agree that this page is useful and should NOT be deleted. I don't know any other place on the web that lists all the Dell Precision laptop models in one place, along with the summary spec of each model. Lifepark (talk) 21:59, 10 January 2017 (UTC)

Current Dell Precision desktop models[edit]

This section seems out of date. Their website lists: T1700, M3800, 5810, 7810, and 7910. Bubba73 You talkin' to me? 05:51, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

Current Dell Precision laptop models[edit]

Most of the "Current Dell Precision laptop models" are now (10 January 2017) discontinued, and should probably be moved to the section named "Discontinued Dell Precision laptop models" appearing towards the bottom. However, I think maintaining 2 separate sections named "current" and "discontinued" is not a good idea, because every model eventually becomes discontinued and causes a high maintenance overhead for this page. I propose that we merge the two sections into one, but add a new column called "Discontinued" next to the "Released" column. This column can have 3 states: (blank) to indicate a current model, (discontinued date) if the discontinued date is known, or just (discontinued) if the discontinued date is unknown. When a model is discontinued, we just need to update a single cell. When new models are introduced, we only need to add new rows, instead of moving stuff around between two tables. I will volunteer to do this if no one objects, because I find this page incredibly useful, and there are about 10-12 current Precision laptop models which don't appear on this page.

Update: I cleaned up the Precision laptop tables, but not exactly as I described above. First I combined the two tables (current and discontinued), then I split the table into 4 subsections: "C Series", "D Series", "E Series", "XPS Series". (I'm not sure if the "XPS Series" is the right term for it, but the M3800 didn't seem to belong anywhere.) I then added another subsection called "3000, 5000, 7000 Series" and added the current lines of Precision laptops (M3510, M3520, M5510, M5520, M7510, M7520, M7710, M7720). I did not add a "discontinued date" column, as I had proposed in the previous paragraph. Because after splitting the entries across multiple subsections ("C Series", "D Series" etc), it seemed easier to determine whether a particular model was discontinued or not.

Article tune-up[edit]

  • Since the article is named "Dell Precision", do we need to repeat "Dell Precision" in each of the top-level headings?
  • We make the distinction between "laptop" and "desktop", but then we list "rack-mounted" as a kind of "desktop".

Any objections to me fixing these?
