XPS 15 9560 vs Precision 5520...

HP Printer Forum - forum.printercomparison.com
Hi guys,

I want to get a new laptop only for work and I can't decide. The field of application is almost exclusively programming and using VMs and stuff.

As an operating system I want to use Ubuntu.

I'm staggering between a DELL XPS 15 9560 and a DELL Precision 5520.

The big advantage of the 5520 is the direct Ubuntu delivery/support. Basically the XPS 15 is supposed to run with Ubuntu but probably needs some tweaks.

It concerns the following models/configurations (Germany)

XPS 15 (1.798,99€)

- 15.6 inches, FHD (1,920 x 1,080)

- Intel Core i7-7700HQ

- 16 GB DDR4, 2,400 MHz

- 512 GB SSD

- GTX 1050 with 4GB GDDR5

Precision 5520 (1.980,98€)

- 15.6 inches, FHD (1,920 x 1,080)

- Intel Core i7-7700HQ

- 16 GB DDR4 2.400 MHz

- 256 GB SSD

- Quadro M1200 4GB DDR5

Alternatively, both are also available with an 15.6 inches UHD Touch (3,840 x 2,160) Display.

Unfortunately, I'm not sure what 4K support is like under Ubuntu and the most popular programs, so I'm not sure if it brings me more advantages than disadvantages in the end.

The price difference is not so deciding for me, what would be the better choice for me and my purpose? Or would you recommend another device (no 13 inches devices please)?

Thank you very much
