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

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.

Solid build quality ; Comfortable keyboard ; Fingerprint and Face detection unlock ; Good battery life ; Competitive price ; Lightweight ; Nice display with good viewing angles

Utilitarian design ; Trackpad isn't clicky ; Speakers could be better

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...
