The usual replacement parts like batteries and drives. My son hit almost 6 years but wore out 3 keyboards. Are you OK with the usual repairs?
Not one of this is durable as in what the dictionary defines as able to withstand wear, pressure, or damage; hard-wearing. "porcelain enamel is strong and durable"
For durable I move folk to Panasonic Toughbooks but those still can need a battery every few years.
I desperately need help since I can’t decide which laptop to buy.
I need something transportable, rugged and well built which can last at least for 6 years.
I use my laptop mainly for heavy web browsing (30+ tabs), web sites maintenance, writing articles.
Secondarily I seldom use adobe premier for create posters, flyers and booklet. Sometimes adobe photoshop and Filmora for video editing and montage. I don’t use my laptop for play video games.
These are the options that I spotted, basically I need an i7, 16gb ram and ssd storage in a portable size without pass 1300$.

What’s your opinion? Especially about quality, hardware, durability, the best deal overall.
Ps. I excluded dell XPS 13 and thinkpad t470, E480 because we’re to much expansive with the same specs.
Thanks in advance for your help
