Depends on the laptop hardware and your gaming preferences ;) Some classics I play often when I get in the mood for it:

Diablo 2
Dark Forces: Jedi Knight
Jagged Alliance 2
StarCraft
Civilication 2, 3 (possibly 4, not that heavy)
Half Life

Baldur's Gate 2
What's wrong with the first one?

Thief: the Dark Project
Thief: the Metal Age
Mount&Blade
Deus Ex
Master of Orion 2
NetHack
Lemmings

Can't come up with anything else that has not been mentioned already. The two thief-games might be a bit hard to come by, and I don't know about the availability of MoO2 either.

Reinstall Deus Ex and complete every ending, with differently built characters each time...

It's fun. I don't know how that's possible. But playing through an entire game three times in a row, even when it consists primarily of different shades of grey, must speak something of the game...

You could always try the sims. It's fun if you want to try and create a haunted house...

Fallout
Fallout 2
The Monkey Island series (well, most LucasArts point&click adventure games too)
and most of the other games people here have recommended, especially Baldur's Gate 1 & 2 (I like number 2 best, but that's just me)

system shock 2 the best

I've completed it no less than 30 times with variously built characters, my favorite being pure wrench on Impossible (which is really pretty easy). Deus Ex got boring after I did a no-kills game on Realistic mode.

You lucky, lucas arts has released a whole lot of 'classic' games latley for 10 bucks. I've picked up Monkey island 3, they also have sam 'n' max and a star wars game.

Both the following games are ment to be good. I've only played nethack and love it.

dwarf fortress is badass, but super imposing to newbies.

possibly the coolest LucasArts adventure of them all.

No, no, no and no. That would be Monkey Island.

Which is where the "possibly" comes in. Both DotT and Curse of Monkey Island are possibly the best LucasArts adventures. It's a difficult choice, you see...

And of course, we could go on all day arguing about which one of the Monkey Island games are the best. But I go with Torp on this one: Curse of Monkey Island is my favourite. DOTT is awesome too.

Now, back on topic. More games:

The Heroes of Might&Magic series (at least 2 & 3, the only ones I've played to any extent)
Planescape: Torment
Total Annihilation
