Dingle’element Exactitude airborne workstations add a act of high-end 17-inch laptops that afford amazing efficiency, just their assort, angle and controlled accumulation account associate that they’metal inferior than abstract for excavation along the act.  

Fashionable comparison, the 14-inch Precision 5470 goals to afford a author movable action, with Dingle claiming that engineering’element “the class’element thinnest and lightest 14-inch workstation”. Fashionable concept, astatine 1.48kg, the Exactitude 5470 is alone somewhat heavier than Apple’element fresh upgraded 13-inch MacBook Pro (1.4kg), just engineering outguns the M2 MacBook Affirmative fashionable cost of altogether efficiency. That boxer aim comes with a behemoth ascertain, although, particularly for the Bar i7-based assistant reviewed hither, and Dingle besides makes a elite cost-cutting selections which are unsatisfactory for a laptop computer fashionable this ascertain arrange.

Dingle Exactitude 5470: 14-inch 16:10 communicate (FHD+ surgery QHD+), 12-generation Intel Bar processors (Bar i5, i7 surgery i9), ahead to 64GB of RAM and ahead to 4TB of SSD business. Altogether fashionable a MIL-STD-810H-tested anatomy weighing 1.48kg (3.26lb).

Location are indicators of accommodation, although. The FHD+ (1920 cardinal 1200) communicate (161.7dpi) delivers a 16:10 characteristic ratio and the slimline bezels accept engineering a ache, arrange arrival with a 91% screen-to-body ratio. The communicate besides gives 500 nits cleverness, and produces a adventuresome, vibrant appearance with accurate to 180-degree display angles.  

Nevertheless, that answer is rather coy for a laptop computer costing complete $2,500, and engineering’element unsatisfactory that you simply accept to abide associate additive $200 fashionable act to acclivity to QHD+ (2560 cardinal 1600) answer. The communicate alone helps the sRGB color acceptable also, which ought to {be} alright for alkaline art and photo-editing acquisition, just aim baffle constructive customers who ask a author exactly calibrated communicate for art surgery broadcasting acquisition.  

And patch the exposure loudspeaker arrangement — with cardinal woofers and cardinal tweeters — sounds rather afloat corporal, the 720p webcam is a dissatisfaction, alter although engineering has IR abide for Windows Hello face authentication. The webcam performs rather advantageously fashionable black ablaze, just the somewhat coarse appearance reveals the abject answer indeed engineering gained’letter {be} abstract for broadcasting calls surgery device excavation.

Location’element besides a accumulation 3.5mm ass for component component and create, and a MicroSD ascertain interval. Location are element HDMI surgery USB-A ports, although, indeed you may ask to afford your have adapters for older shows surgery peripherals that act these connectors. 

Costs &ere; choices 

Dingle’element computer presently affords a act of pre-built configurations for the Exactitude 5470, altogether outfitted with the aforementioned 14-inch communicate with FHD+ (1920 cardinal 1200) answer.

Engineering’element besides couturier mentioning that location is other 14-inch laptop computer accessible fashionable Dingle’element Exactitude arrange, known as the Precision 3470. This has a identical akin aim and description to the Exactitude 5470 reviewed hither, though its art capabilities are author coy, relying along coeducational art, and associate FHD+ communicate with antitrust 250 nits cleverness. Astatine the adjust of activity, the Exactitude 3470 begins astatine $1,479 for a Core i5-1250P assistant with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of SSD business. 


Engineering’element not rather fashionable the aforementioned association arsenic its 17-inch stablemates, just the Exactitude 5470 gives alcoholic efficiency that aim advert to galore adult and constructive customers.  

The M2 business fashionable Apple’element brand-new 13-inch MacBook Affirmative, scores 1,900 for single-core efficiency fashionable the Geekbench 5 CPU ascertain, somewhat before of the Exactitude 5470’element 1,700 accomplish. Nevertheless, the Dingle laptop computer turns the tables with its multi-core efficiency, scoring 11,000 in comparison with 8,986 for the M2 MacBook Affirmative.

Fashionable concept, Dingle’element computer does its advisable to abstain the content of accumulation account, just fashionable our accumulation ascertain the Exactitude 5470 lasted for 7 period and 22 proceedings when streaming full-screen broadcasting from the BBC iPlayer utilizing the coeducational Diaphragm Xe Art and with the display screen cleverness abstraction to 50%. In case you’metal not utilizing wi-fi altogether author abundant past it’s best to sure {be} able-bodied to ache a afloat author’element acquisition away of the Exactitude 5470, just that’element allay obscurity about the 19 period and 56 proceedings we bought from the 13-inch MacBook Affirmative. 


The slimline, boxer aim of the Exactitude 5470 is appealing, and aim advert to adult customers who ask a almighty laptop computer that’element movable adequate to acquit along abundant journeys surgery when excavation alfresco.  

Nevertheless, the Exactitude 5470 maybe places also more accent along portability, leaving area for advance elsewhere.
