Dell Latitude 7490 (i5-8350U, FHD) Laptop Review


Reliable business partner. Today's Latitude 7490 configuration packs a quad-core Core i5-8350U and conventional M.2 SATA storage, and it makes a few more cuts to deflate the cost a bit. Even so, this remains an impressive machine. How does this...

Dell Latitude 7490 review


Intel's new silicon and a honed design make a great combo

Reasonable price ; Excellent performance ; Great battery life

Dell proprietary PSU

Dell has taken the clean lines of the 7480 series, injected some go-faster silicon, and given this laptop a price tag that most business users will find hard to resist.
