Test score %
Dell’s Inspiron 14 7490 is the top of the tree when it comes to the Inspiron range, and comes with a set of tech specs that make it more powerful than the likes of the Dell XPS 13 and Microsoft Surface Laptop 3, but priced in the same bracket. However, this can often suggest a false economy, with compromises that aren’t as obvious as a lacklustre spreadsheet. We’ve run this laptop through our lab test to see how it fares, so read our full review for our expert verdict.
