Currently I'm running a Toshiba 17 inch P200 1IR Equium, Intel Core Duo with 2GB ram - had it for 6 years now from new and it still suits me perfectly. Only problem was when I spilled a cup of coffee on the keyboard (classic fail) which I renewed myself at a cost of £30 or so. Build quality is superb and it has a full size, soft-touch, good visibility (black on grey) keyboard which is easy and quiet to type on. So... what is your favourite "bullet proof" computer, and why?

P.S.: Just an afterthought, but equally informative - what was the worst one you have ever owned?
(I'm thinking "Tiny" computers here, but that was "back in the day"....)

I swear by Toshiba laptops ever since I was gifted a 2nd hand one by a client donkeys ago. I've since bought two and have no complaints whasoever.
