Have a look at HP business laptops (pro line). They make them intentionally for businesses who order thousands of units and need frequent upgrades. They even provide Bios upgrades for as long as 5 years sometimes. Their consumer models are nowhere near in terms of updatability and support.

The self-imposed American government of the (The North) is not very respected among the people with more than half a brain. No money, no free work. I guess that smart coders would rather code for the world in an open source way, instead of coding for one corrupt system that is breaking their lives in numerous ways.
