Look no further than a 2012 laptop

The Thinkpad X230 can accommodate 16GB RAM, accommodate an mSATA SSD and 2.5" SSD/HDD. Plus you can spill water on the keyboard

Don't mind spending more can get the Chinese modded X330 with InfinityEdge

There’s a lot of intrinsic value in an old laptop. If I may add, then an Elitebook 2570P is good as well! - Upgradable CPU, easy to access latch cover, support for e-gpu

Enterprise models from Sandy-Ivy Bridge era, imo, are the last of the proper hardy robust laptops. Haswell onwards has seen all brands converge towards the unibody MBP in both style and design philosophy.
