The Toshiba laptop I had for over 8 years finally died. I replaced it with Gigabyte P27K-CF2 17.3-Inch Laptop. This is advertised as a gaming laptop, but it makes a great laptop for developers as well. It has lots of memory for running multiple virtual machines at the same time and has lots of expansion as well. The screen is a HD screen and movies look great on it. Another nice thing is the laptop didn’t come loaded with bloatware, so I didn’t have to waste time uninstalling a lot of stuff.
