Default Which laptop do you use for work?

Which laptop do repair techs here use?

I currently have an ancient Dell Inspiron 510m so I'm in desperate need of an upgrade as its slow and customers probably expect me to be using the latest tech.

I'm considering an ASUS Eee PC, but I'm wondering what others here use.

Asus eeePC 1005HA. Put a solid state in it and upgraded the memory. When I'm at the house, it's a thin client, when I'm on a job, it's a portable server.

ThinkPad x201t, loaded up with OneNote and some other apps works great for troubleshooting and note taking.

When I'm on-site, an Acer Aspire One, Windows 7, upgraded RAM. Very portable, long battery life, works great for what I need.

To the op: the eee pc is a fairly decent product (as far as netbooks go). I got one for my wife upgraded to 2gb and 320gb hdd. She is rough on computers and it has been doing great for the year or so that she's had it.

my main desktop is a Dell inspiron 6400 running Ubuntu Linux.
I was carrying a Dell mini 9 that I had ubuntu, then OSX, and finally ubuntu for about 2 years.
Now I'm carrying a Vostro 3700 that I bought a few months ago.
