There are a lot of should i get this, etc. posts- but what kind of laptop do YOU have?
Dell at work....seems ok, but I have never taken it out of the docking station, so I won't speak for durability.
Toshiba at home. Heavy, but has handled my abuse pretty well.
Just got a Sony Vaio last week. Very light and overall seems to be a great laptop except for putting the USB ports on the left side....some left-handed engineer is laughing at me right now.
