It is much better to buy Elitebook with better build (including material) and better support. It is more expensive of course.

Hi @EdForrest 

Please, let me add some comment

 

It is highly recommended that you use an SSD (not an HDD) - solid state drive instead of hard disk drivers.

SSDs are nowadays standard, much faster, lighter, more reliable. Here is more general info:

>> https://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch001396.htm

>> https://www.crucial.com/articles/about-ssd/the-benefits-of-an-ssd

I would choose one of these brands -> Samsung, Intel (1st choice) and Crucial, AData, Koaxia , SanDisk, Koaxia (2nd choice)

 

 

If you prefer second hand/refurbished product, you may want to check HP Business Outlet for USA >> http://www.hp.com/sbso/buspurchase_refurbished.html

 

As mentioned by @banhien , Elitebooks are elite, higher class, better build, business critical ones. Probooks are also good but cheaper, more for essential tasks. If you want more information, please provide some concrete models to compare.

 

Hope this helps !
