Dell Latitude 5490

 

While the Dell Latitude 5490 may not turn heads with its design, this business laptop's wealth of connectivity and strong performance make it a great workday companion.

Powerful performance. Great selection of ports, including VGA and Ethernet.

Dull design. A tad heavy. Lackluster audio. Screen could be brighter.

Bottom Line: While the Dell Latitude 5490 may not turn heads with its design, this business laptop's wealth of connectivity and strong performance make it a great workday companion.

Dell Latitude 5490 Review

 

The Dell Latitude 5490 is a speedy business laptop, but its display disappoints.

Fast performance; Long battery life; Comfortable keyboard; Plenty of security options

Uninspiring display; Poor audio; Heats up
