I want to compare the Dell Latitude E7480 laptop with its replacement, the E7490. All things being equal, is there any great difference between the two? If the 7480 has the same features at a lower price point, is there any reason to get the 7490 instead?
I'm looking at both laptops on the Dell small business outlet site. They have good deals on refurbished, scratch and dent, and returns. They all come with the same warranty as new.
The customer I'm buying this laptop for is not a power user, but wants to be able to take advantage of new hardware as it becomes available. We need some idea of the relative value of various features.
For standard laptops, not 2 in 1s, how useful is touch versus non-touch.
I won't get one with resolution below 1280X1024. But some of the 7480s come with 2560 X 1440 touch (and gorilla glass). Is it something to jump at?
USB C versus Thunderbolt 3.
NVME versus standard SSD drives.
(NVME are blazing fast, but how much difference does this make to an average user?) How important in terms of the future?
They both take DDR4 memory. Looking at user manuals, memory seems to be a relatively simple upgrade on both. To me a lower amount of memory, 4GB versus 8 or 8 versus 16 isn't a deal breaker. Do you agree?
6th versus 7th versus 8th generation Intel processors.
Windows 10 Home versus Pro. (almost all are Pro but I just notices a Win10 Home. Is that a deal breaker?)
Any other observations?
