G'day. My partner is looking to upgrade her laptop since it's starting to fall apart. Uni student who does a lot of document writing, online researching and spreadsheeting for work.
I'm able to get a discount on laptops through the company my work gets their laptops from. They've offered me a Dell Latitude 7490 business laptop for $500.
- Intel Core I5-8250U
- 256GB SSD
- 14" FHD
- Windows 11 ready
Laptop is $450 + $50 for the dock (which we'll definitely get).
Here it is at PB Tech for $1148.
I understand that the CPU is getting a bit old now but my partner isn't a gamer. The most intensive thing she'll do is watch a couple of movies on Kodi using Real-Debrid or open 30 tabs full of PDFs. I'll upgrade the RAM myself if we decide to buy it.
Thoughts on this laptop for $500? Happy if it lasts at least 3/4 years.
