This new 14-inch Dell laptop has the potential to be a powerful machine since you can customize it with an Intel Core i5 processor and up to 16 GB of memory. You can also opt for an M.2 PCI NVMe or M.2 SATA drive if a 7200 RPM SATA drive is not fast enough for your needs. Regardless of how you set it up, the Dell Latitude 5490 remains an excellent and affordable laptop. It’s a premium ultra-book that delivers exceptional performance in a compact package.
Although it is mainly intended for commercial use, you can get a lot of entertainment from 5490. You can stream videos, listen to music and play some standard games. Although not dedicated, the integrated Intel UHD graphics (620) still perform well.
If security is a concern, log in with ease thanks to the Enable Windows Hello, an infrared camera technology that facilitates facial recognition for secure access. There are several security options to meet your needs, including a fingerprint reader and the NFC of the contactless Smart Card Reader. These options do not cost much money and are worth the price for the tranquillity they give you.
Another great feature is vPro-exclusive extensions that allow you to remotely manage multiple devices. This includes diagnostics, whether or not they are linked.
