- Final Words
The 7560 also comes with a standard three-year warranty and top-notch security options like Windows, Ubuntu, and Red Hat. Overall, the Precision 7560 is a good alternative to the Lenovo ThinkPad P15 Gen 2 and the HP ZBook Fury 15 G8, which are its two main competitors. Even with corporate or fleet discounts, it won’t be cheap, but if you want the most performance possible in a 15.6-inch laptop, the Precision 7560 is a good choice.

Dell Precision 7560 review: Design
The Precision 7560 Workstation has a lot of power that will more than likely please architecture, enterprise, IT, visual design, and Adobe Suite users. It did well enough on our TechRadar tests. For example, it got a score of 7102 on the PCMark 10 Home Test.
Dell Precision 7560 review: Display
Dell Optimizer, which is at the top of this software package, offers system analytics and optimization for audio, applications, network connection, and power. It also has options for proximity sensors, which let users quickly lock their computers when they need to leave the room. If facial recognition is turned on, this works with the built-in camera. Video and photo editors can also use Dell Premier colour to change the way their displays look.
Dell Precision 7560 review: Keyboard and touchpad
Only a few design quirks keep me from giving the keyboard a high recommendation: It has two levels of backlighting, a quick typing feel, and a handy numeric keypad. However, it follows the annoying HP practise of putting the cursor arrow keys in a row instead of the correct inverted T, with hard-to-press, half-height up and down arrows stacked between full-size left and right arrows.
Dell Precision 7560 review: Graphics Tests
If you want to charge quickly, you can also get a 95WHr Express Charge battery. With our review unit’s powerful RTX A4000 graphics card, either 95WHr battery is a must-have upgrade over the base 68WHr battery.
Dell Precision 7560 review: Battery Life
We test the battery life of laptops by playing a locally stored 720p video file (the open-source Blender movie Tears of Steel, which opens in a new window) with the display brightness at 50% and the audio volume at 100%. Before the test, we make sure the battery is fully charged and turn off Wi-Fi and keyboard backlighting.
We also use a Datacolor SpyderX Elite monitor calibration sensor and its Windows software to measure a laptop screen’s colour saturation (what percentage of the sRGB, Adobe RGB, and DCI-P3 colour gamuts or palettes it can show) and its 50% and peak brightness in nits.
Dell Precision 7560 review: Price and availability
Dell might be upset that we said the Precision 7560 starts at $2,449, even though you can buy one for $1,919, but that model has Intel graphics built in, so we don’t consider it a workstation. (Not that our eyes could focus on its dim 220-nit display.) The “real” base model has a Core i5 CPU with six cores, Nvidia T1200 graphics, and a 1080p screen that is brighter.
These are the problems with the Dell 7560 and why you shouldn’t buy one. But we our still happy with what we bought. The laptop weighs 2 kg, which is a little heavy but fine. It looks really nice.
It is 15 inches tall. Aside from that, we bought this computer to edit videos, not to play games, and it works well for that. If you want a gaming laptop, think about the new Dell Inspiron 7567 with the Nvidia 1050TI card.
- Phenomenal performance
- Beautiful display
- Easy to upgrade SSD Storage
- Slightly awkward keyboard layout
Is the Dell Precision 7560 good for gaming?
With these GPUs, you can play modern, demanding games smoothly at HD resolution and medium detail settings. i9-11950H is a high-end octa-core SoC for gaming laptops and workstations. It is based on Tiger Lake (H45 series) and has eight cores. The speed of the eight CPU cores is between 2.6 and 5 GHz. The UHD Graphics GPU that is built in has 32 cores.
Does Dell 7560 have a touch screen?
There is a 1080p touch screen, but ours is the best option because there is no OLED panel on the menu. Included are Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth, Windows 10 Pro, and on-site service for three years.
What is the resolution of Dell Precision 7560?
The screen on the review model we have has a resolution of UHD (38402160). The 600-nit brightness and 100% Adobe RGB colour coverage will be especially useful for designers.
