The second wave of 802.11ac routers are now shipping, and they offer a tantalizing performance benefit over the previous routers we’ve reviewed (at least with their older firmware) — the ability to broadcast multiple data streams to several clients at once.

Dell Precision 15 5510 Mobile Workstation Review: Pro Power And Style

To look at the Dell Precision 15 5510, you wouldn’t know that it sits in the middle of Dell’s workstation lineup.
