+1 for business HP models, mine is 4 years old and still kicking ass, stripped it to airbrush it too, and still no problems. business models do seem to last longer/be more robustPersonally i would buy an ex-corparate high end HP model such as the 2510p ( i have one of these)
or the 6910p.
Build quality is very very good.
And having around 2000-3000 of these in our company we see these in for repair very very seldom, The toshibas, are always in for repair.
Only ever changed 3 motherboards on these and that was down to spilling on them.
The 2510p hard drive does have a tendency to slow down as it is a 1.8" drive but i replaced mine with a SSD
6910p was over 1k new now sells for ?250 on the tbay
Also have a 6120 and it is a cracking laptop i must say
