Is Computer a Member of a Domain "Laptops" Group

Check if the local computer is a member of a particular AD group that denotes being a laptop:

Const domain = "MyDomain"
Const laptops = "Laptop Computers"

Set objShell = CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")

Function IsLaptop()
    Dim objGroup, retval, cn, objMember
    cn = objShell.ExpandEnvironmentStrings("%computername%")
    On Error Resume Next
    Set objGroup = GetObject("WinNT://" & domain & "/" & laptops & "")
    If err.Number = 0 Then
        For each objMember in objGroup.Members
            If Lcase(objMember.Name) = Lcase(cn & "$") Then
                retval = True
           End If
        Next
    Else
        wscript.echo "fail: group not found"
    End If
    IsLaptop = retval
End Function

If IsLaptop() Then
    wscript.echo "laptop"
Else
    wscript.echo "not-laptop"
End If
