TUDublin Recommendations for Dell Devices
While the buying decision rests solely with the student, we would ask students to please be aware of these specifications when purchasing a device as off-the-shelf devices come with much lower specs and have a very limited warranty. While the student laptops remain a contract between the student and the vendor, we have made our recommendation based on students being in the University for 3 or 4 years. Laptops of lower and higher specification are available on the HEAnet Store.
A MEDIUM spec (i.e. able to run Win 10, an AV solution and Office comfortably. Be able to use Wi-Fi and camera to attend online classes, use other software such as SPSS, Adobe Connect, Minitab, Maple, so needs more RAM, SSD, etc.)
CATEGORY A – Device Recommendation
Latitude 5540 – 15.6”, i5 Processor, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD
Latitude 5440 – 14”, i5 Processor, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD (same spec as 5540, smaller screen)
A HIGH spec (i.e. able to run Win 10, an AV solution and Office comfortably. Be able to use Wi-fi and camera to attend online classes, use other hardware intensive software such as Adobe Cloud Premium suite, Visual Studio, AutoCAD, ProEng, so needs high RAM, larger SSD, Graphics acceleration, etc.)
CATEGORY B – Device Recommendation
Precision Mobile Workstation 3581 – 15.6”, i7 Processor with Nvidia RTX A500 Graphics, 32GB RAM, 512GB SSD
