There is more online support, for installation and troubleshooting, for HAI and Elk, compared with DSC.
But yes, DSC would be cheaper. I don't know if it supports email notifications, but I'm guessing it does.
Read the manual(s) closely before purchasing any system.
You'll likely find additional uses for the HA aspects of the Elk and HAI panels.
