Hey yeah, what Bassvax said. Considering what my company usually buys, and the fact that I never hear any complaints, my first choice would be the IBM Thinkpad followed by Toshiba. I have no personal or otherwise experience with Dell's laptops or notebooks, but they are a good company and should be, IMHO, up there in the top three to five choices.
