Reviews for the Dell Vostro 14 5490

82.1% Dell Vostro 14 5490: Business laptop with dedicated GPU in review | Notebookcheck
With the Vostro series, Dell primarily targets small businesses that want to offer a good compromise between performance and cost. Our 14-inch Vostro 5490 even has a dedicated graphics card, but the fan control is not well developed.
70% Dell Vostro 14 5490 business laptop review
Source: Techradar English
The Dell Vostro 14 5490 business laptop is a capable, beautifully designed and well configured product. However, it does suffer from a chronic mispricing strategy which is not intrinsic to it. It needs to be significantly cheaper by at least 20% to be a viable alternative to other models.

Dell Vostro 5490 review – a hodgepodge between an XPS and a ZenBook
Source: Laptop Media English
Ladies and gentlemen, if you are familiar with the Vostro 5590, this laptop is obviously not that different from the other. However, the performance figures of the new Core i7-10510U inside this machine are pretty darn good. Sadly, there had to be a catch. Here, the toll is in the form of noise. The fan of this notebook sounds more like one of a gaming laptop, rather than a business ultrabook. Perhaps, this is what you get when you want a powerful laptop that is small in size too.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce MX250: Successor of the MX150 and still based on the same Pascal GP108 chip (similar to the desktop GT 1030) but with higher clock speeds. Available in two versions, a normal 25 Watt version and a low power version with 10 Watt TDP and reduced performance. The 25 Watt version e.g. offers a 21% higher boost clock than the old MX150 leading to a 5% performance gain.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


i7-10510U: Comet Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Whiskey Lake and still produced in 14nm++). The CPU cores can clock between 1.8 and 4.9 GHz (all 4 cores 4.3 GHz max.) with HyperThreading (8 threads). The integrated memory controller supports DDR4-2666 and using cTDP up/down the performance can be adjusted by the OEM (10 - 25 Watt possible, 15W default).» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


14.00":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

1.484 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.

76.05%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
