I've been thinking of making an image of my laptop's hard drive for backup purposes.
What would be the best way of doing this? I know about dd but is there a more user-friendly way, perhaps a GUI front-end to dd?

if its windows 7, why not use the built in backup tool? it included a backup and full bare metal restore function i believe.
If you don't care to spend a bit of money, check out the impressive Genie Timeline Professional.
This let's you go back in time, deleted a file 1 week ago? No problem, go back in time and recover it!
if your OS is windows 7 you can use backup options of this OS but if not you can use a program (acronis true image home 2010 or similar versions) ..... ((( win7 's back-up will copy every data but compression level is very low i guess but with the program you can decrease the size of your backup with %40 may be more but it depands of your data i guess)))
