The Latitudes have always been well thought-of.
I am not sure if this is still true, but Dell used to use only proprietary power supplies. If your PSU died, you couldn't replace it with a standard PSU. The mobo too used to be proprietary. You couldn't put a standard motherboard in should yours fail for some reason.
Dell was not alone in that Compaq used to do the same thing.
Still, I find those to be valid complaints against a Dell Latitude. (Assuming it's still true, I have no idea if it is or not. If a PSU dies, I remove the HDD and maybe the RAM and send it in for recycling.)
