Actually my little Asian outlets did make laptops and I used to rent them when I traveled back when they were too expensive to own just for a few trips. Remember the little Asian shops just stocked motherboards, power supplies and cases and assembled them to spec, whether tower or laptop unless the laptops came pre-assembled as I didn't watch them do it.
Regardless, I should point out I use Linux servers and Windows desktops and laptops, plus a pile of Android devices so I have no real allegiance to any specific platform except to use what I find appropriate for the task at hand.
If I needed a Linux box I sure as heck wouldn't buy a Windows machine in the first place but that's just me, I'd get a blank machine and load it myself.
