1) I saw Laptops that you can buy componentwise in Paris in Rue Montgallet.
I don't remember any reference to MS, but that doesn't necessarily
mean they are free of it.
2) If you want a quality brand you might want to check whether
buying a bunch of Laptop spare parts from IBMs online store
and assembling them yourself is a viable option.
