The Dell Precision 5720 Is an AIO Workstation Crafted to $4,000 Perfection


Dell new Precision 5720 is an all-in-one made for the gamer type more than the professional, although don't be fooled, it is outfitted for a professional environment as well. The idea of an all-in-one (AIO) PC means everything's ready to go out-of-the box. Dubbed the Precision 5720 AIO PC, this is Dell’s newest take on the already popular XPS 27 from 2017, yet with more flavor- meaning more design applications, and prograde content. Configured using AMD’s Radeon WX-series workstation graphics, and Intel’s Xeon class CPU processors, this may be a one-of-a-kind in terms of software and hardware.

This isn’t a PC made to move around. Internally made from all aluminum, the exterior poses well with black accents, and an edgy, matte metallic finish. It's beautiful, let's face it. Two variants of the Precision 5720 exist, one with touch and one without. The touchscreen, quite special actually, is handled via an articulating stand, so facing your display upwards and flat only makes completing tasks with your included stylus that much easier. However, the non-touch model doesn’t offer flex like that, but rather simple angle-viewing adjustments. The Precision 5720 features a stunning 27 inches (all in 4K), whereas the LCD screen portion alone measures 17.1 inches tall. The touch version weighs 37.3 pounds, and the non-touch weighs a lesser 24.9 pounds, as it doesn’t contain any articulating stand.

The AIO from Dell is a great mixture between a professional machine and a multimedia performer. Sound, something that is rare to be spoken about in much length in this blog, is something special for the Precision 5720. There are six speakers in the front, and four more in the back, each of which include 50 watt digital amplifiers. Potentially, this is a gaming AIO machine, and perfect one to go at it with VR. Although so Incredibly customizable it might make you dizzy, the starting performance specs begin with an Intel i5-7500 CPU running 64-bit Windows 10 Pro; along with 8GB RAM (upgradable to 64GB), and AMD's Radeon Pro WX 4150, 4GB of GDDR5 memory, and either a 500GB or a 1TB hard drive. These specs will get you places, as far as casual gaming in FHD, and all the media streaming, documentation, and image storage you could hope for. For professionals, this amount of RAM will be fine, but upgrading the hard drive is best for the gamer inside you.

Of course, you could upgrade to the nearly $4,000 mark, and you may do that by maxing out storage and memory configurations. That will also mean you get a faster quad-core Intel Xeon E3 CPU at 3.8GHz, 32GB of ECC memory, a 512GB SSD, and 2TB hard drives. Graphics will be upgraded as well, bumped to the AMD Radeon Pro WX 7100, at 8GB. This level of features will provide more 4K editing without any worry of lag, or overpowering the machine. It will also enforce smooth gaming, conducive frame rates cut up to 66 frames per second (fps).

Yet, as expected from the prosperous and advanced pioneering it took to create this beautiful machine, this will be expensive to own. The base model starts at $1,699, and up. As far as the most elite configuration, be ready to spend around $3,499. As this AIO fits perfectly in the realm of game development, recording studios, and professional applications using any accessory you’d like, it nearly makes it a good value. At most, the Precision 5720 may be one of the best business AIO desktops around at this time.
