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.

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...

durable and solid case construction ; attractive, subdued, soft-touch exterior ; good general system performance ; terrific keyboard ; greatly improved touchpad (thanks to Windows Precision drivers) ; strong selection of ports and convenient layout ;...

competitors offer superior display options ; thermal design could be improved; warm while idling and under load ; speakers are weak compared to older Latitude machines ; combined system stress results in throttled performance

Once again, we come away from a Dell Latitude 7000 series machine thoroughly impressed. Along with Lenovo’s ThinkPads and HP’s EliteBooks, the Latitudes stand head and shoulders above the rest of the business competition. They’re thoughtfully designed,...

Dell Latitude 7490 review: A lightweight and durable business machine


If your business needs a lightweight, durable and security focused laptop. Then consider the lightweight and durable Dell Latitude 7490.

This is the first time I’ve used the Latitude lineup in many years. I think Dell has done a great job of refreshing these. While they’re not super awesome in terms of design, they’re not ugly either. They’re well built, have great battery life, great...

Dell Latitude 7490 review: A solid business all-rounder Review | ZDNet


Dell's 14-inch Latitude 7490 is a robust business laptop with good battery life and strong all-round performance. It's tough enough to travel well, if a little on the heavy side.

Robust build ; Good performance ; All-day battery life ; Responsive pointing stick and buttons ; Lots of configuration options

No touch-screen option ; Too much key travel for some people ; Enter key design needs a rethink ; Relatively chunky and heavy ; Large, weighty power brick with proprietary connector
