I'm not going to touch a Lenovo or HP notebook with an 800m-long pole simply because they use a BIOS / UEFI whitelist that blocks the system from booting if you insert in a non-whitelisted WiFi card.

Well it's not like they're the only OEMs in the world, and let's be completely honest here... ALL of the OEMs are crap in some way or another, and basically you have to evaluate to see which OEM has the least crappy product for your needs at the time you're evaluating a new purchase, because the laptop market has not opened up to builders yet and thus you can't have an actually good product.
