I'm looking for a solution to backup laptops  - on poor internet connection in this case ( 1MBit upload).
I need to see backup reports with list of files copied, and of course be able to restore deleted files as well as previous version -  from many datetimes - not only the last backup.

Laptops ( XP, W7, Vista ) are also equipped with mobile broadband and the solution should not use it - it should only work in company LAN.

There is no server in this scenario.

Does anyone use such application?

Just googled it for you. :)

I personally still prefer traditional backup and restore as it works OFFLINE. :)

Dropbox is not enough - i need something that works like dropbox but it syncs almost entire computer ( with settings for example not to backup files larger then X megs, mp3 etc ) without user interaction.

HP's Data Protector Nobebook Extension is a full backup program that can back up desktops or laptops with full control by IT.  It backs up to your ( or your contracted ) data center, so maybe it's not what you want.  

See http://www.hp.com/go/dataprotector
