hi
currently i have Lenovo X240 which is really good as it's small and light weighted, spec is core i5 4300u , 8gb ram , ssd 240 gb wd green and intel hd 4400

i'm thinking of selling it to my friend as he said he want's my laptop and buy a new one for myself, not a new and outta box laptop but a stock one which was used by someone else and then some technician test them and sell them to customers...

My usage is just a little playing Minecraft and Valorant lol and main usage is working on my website , so i have like 10 tabs opened at chrome and also Telegram opened in the background and i switch between them while listening to PotPlayer playing musics...

I have found two three stock laptops:
Dell Latitude 5480:
CPU: Intel Core i7-7820HQ
RAM: 8 DDR4
Storage: 128 SSD
Graphics: Intel Integrated Graphics
Screen: 14" FHD Touch
Weight: 1.6 Kg
price in my country: 290$

Dell Latitude 5490:
CPU: Intel Core i5-8350U
RAM: 8 DDR4
Storage: 128
Graphics: Intel Integrated Graphics
Screen: 14 FHD Touch
Weight: 1.6 Kg
price in my country 300$

HP EliteBook 745 G6:
CPU: ryzen 5 pro 3500u
RAM: 8 DDR4
Storage: 128GB SSD
Graphics: Ryzen Vega 8
Screen: 14 FHD Touch
Weight: 1.6 Kg

All three are stock and used before but tested by the seller

any better options ? should i really sell my x240 and buy latitude 5490?

thanks for the help, i'm really confused

Hey there,

I'd prob go with the I7 7820h. Whilst both procs are ver similar, the i7 has bigger cacha, and much better stock clocks. The I7 base speed is 2.9 ghz versus the 1.9ghz of the 8350u.

Other than that they are pretty much the same. I7 wins it IMO.

wouldn't that use more battery even when i don't do anything heavy with laptop? and what about the heat?


do you think it's a good laptop? i mean is dell latitude a good option ?

In terms of battery usage, no, not really. Intel use Intel Speedstep which shifts the cores to lower power states when not in use. Windows is pretty good at that.

I've two Dell Latitude 7280's. One with a I5 7300u and the other with a I5 8350u as above. Both a refurbs from Dell partners. Both cost €300 euro. Both with 8gbs ram and 512gb SSD(M2). One is my GF's daily runner, the other I use as a plex server. Loving them so far.

Keep in mind, none of these are gamers. It should run light games play.

One thing to consider is the screen res. The I5 7300 lappie has a 1080p screen. The stronger CPU i5 8350u has only 768p. Try get the 1080p panels. It's worth the difference.

hi, i5 8350u has much lower base clock compared to 7820h1 that's why i asked

both has 1080p screen
