For Okna patio doors, I'm trying to compare the Forester:

With the Elegante:

I can't see a single difference between the two. What are the differences?

Thank you.

None, except for the corners. The forrester has a butt jointed weld while the elegante is a 45/ mitred. Has nothing to do with performance.

Bingo.

Butt-joined weld vs. normal weld.

No difference in performance but a must have if you do an interior laminate.

So, if I just want an all white door (inside and outside), is there a reason (maybe reliability?) to select one over the other?

Nope. You are fine with either and neither have a benefit over the other in that comparison.
