The *best* laptop is the one you already have.

If you need to buy another, have a look at the Probook line from HP. Specs aside, it's spill resistant and you have access to all the innards (memory, hdd, cooler) in 2 seconds, without un-screwing a single screw.

HTH,
Dan

This will always be a personal preference, so you won't get any one "correct answer. Personally I'd probably go for a lenovo, they are robust and geared to professional use. OR also Asus has good products. What I would never consider are Sony's Vayo stuff, or an Acer. Sony laptops are generally just far too expensive for the value, while Acer laptops are generally built to be cheep, and that's what they are.

I use for myself and for clients ThinkPad laptops. The ThinkPad brand has long been a good standard in laptops.

Most clients use "T" series laptops. A few and myself use "X" series.

I have a ThinkPad X230 that is about a year old. It runs Windows 8.1.1 Pro 64-bit, Office 2013, VMware Workstation 10.0.2 and has a half dozen virtual machines from Windows 7 Pro on down.

It has a 500 Gb 7200-rpm hard drive and 8 Gb of memory expandable to 16 Gb.

It has a very bright LED screen and the battery is good for 5 hours of applied use. I can easily get a one day meeting out of it.

I use this machine because it is excellent and does not have any problems.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

which ever laptop you purchase, make sure it has pre-installed OS, sothat you can get update the OS time to time and keep safe.
for choosing laptop 1. consider your requirement, 2. Budget, 3. service centre in your area

>>  the best in terms of value / reliability    <<  as said this is personal choice
if you want performance - increase RAM to max, and look for an SSD drive; it's the best investment for performance - but it costs abit more
i would suggest intel SSD drives - i just bought a 530 model  like this :  http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820167175
