Getting emails to upgrade my laptop- should I get a Dell Latitude 7480 OR HP 360 EliteBook x360? I care about performance(coding, running virtual machines), battery life, portability in that order.

Not especially, but I’ve also not done anything too taxing to it. Most I’ve ever pushed it is probably running a single-node Elasticsearch cluster and Kibana, with text parsing and data loading going on in the background. If I could run VMs I could push it much harder but as I said, not possible unfortunately

I’m so sick of my 7480. I’ve hotswapped my hard drive 4 times in 2 years.

Go for the Dell 👍

I like my X360 but if you’re doing those sorts of things either of them may be underpowered. You may want the 15” high-spec laptop if you have a charge code and PPED approval. (Also do note that you can’t do VMs with the default loadset, at least the one I’ve had on my X360 and prior E7470; Credential Guard prevents Hyper-V, VMware, and VirtualBox from working. Maybe it works on the higher spec machine, I’ve never gotten to play with one)

Alternate history: Simone continues on, manages not to break her neck, but absolutely s**ts the bed and is criticized for taking the US off the podium when knew she wasn't on her game.
