Business Laptop: HP Elite Book and Dell Latitude
I am choosing between a HP Elite Book and Dell Latitude laptop for a 2011/2012 refurbished laptop.
- In term of durability and reliability, which brand would be safer?
- Comparing Elite Book and Latitude design, which one is more likely to be designed for easier RAM/SSD upgrade?
- Are replacement parts generally cheaper or more widely available for HP Elite Book or Dell Latitude?

I am deciding between a refurbished 2011 HP EliteBook 2560p and Dell Latitude E6220. Both are similar in configuration:
- Intel Core i5-2520M
- 12.5" 1366x768 matt display
- 4 GB DDR3 RAM
- 250 GB HDD
I can get them for around US$200, as a backup machine for use on-the-go.
So I do wonder how HP Elite Book and Dell Latitude compares in term of reliability for old laptops. The shop is giving me a 1 month warranty and if anything fails after 30 days, it's my own problem which I have to fix out of my own pocket.
