Look at the registry keys here:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E96B-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}\001

This script will return the "Real" machine type:

                                          $wbemFlagReturnImmediately + $wbemFlagForwardOnly)

If IsObj($colItems) then
   For $objItem In $colItems
      $strChassisTypes = $objItem.ChassisTypes(0)
      ;$Output = $Output & "ChassisTypes: " & $strChassisTypes & @CRLF

So what happens when the laptop is docked and has an external keyboard plugged in?

I believe the docked keyboard becomes instance \002 in that registry key, but I don't have one here to try it.

But your WMI check of the chassis type is more to the point anyway.
