The Dell Latitude 5490 is the 2018 replacement for the 5480 released in 2017.   The Latitude 5480 was an amazing corporate grade laptop that had the option to add a “Caching SSD” to massively boost the performance of a spinning hard disk.  Unfortunately the, that functionality has been removed from the 5490 and it will be missed.
