    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.

    1. In term of durability and reliability, which brand would be safer?
    2. Comparing Elite Book and Latitude design, which one is more likely to be designed for easier RAM/SSD upgrade?
    3. 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.
