Sorry...forgot to mention i have looked at the apple Macbook Pro and think its awesome but we have a PC based network in the office with over 26 current stations and our IT company aren't too hot on apple...so its got to be a PC based solution i am afraid.
Thanks for the advice all the same!

Panasonic has kind of a brutish appeal (ToughBook) and the Sonys have some style (but mediocre build quality from what I've seen). But I still haven't seen any PC laptops that I find as clean and well designed as the Macs.
...then buy a machine from a 'PC' vendor. They will usually have a long history of making their systems work well with Windows, give you a lot more options, and in most cases, they look just as pretty.
Any posts on this forum about recommendations for hardware are usually spammed by 'Why don't you buy a Mac' messages for about the first 10 posts or so, but then they get tired and leave. If you want to run Windows(which, despite what you might hear, actually is a very good OS), then buy a machine from a 'PC' vendor. They will usually have a long history of making their systems work well with Windows, give you a lot more options, and in most cases, they look just as pretty.Henry,
