> They are DELLs locked with a boot password

Try a Panasonic Toughbook, it_is_not_the_same...

I had a (actually this one I'm on) Panasonic CF-53 I picked up on CL* for $200 and it was locked down to a fair-thee-well. Took it apart, motherboard is in three separate pieces, no matter what, it held on to it's password like it's life depended on it. After about two months of exclusive kitchen table priority(there is nada on web for Toughbooks btw), finally gave up and sent it off to Panasonic to clear the password. Cost me like $200.

*It was legit. Somebody used it to pay off a landscaper and the landscaper didn't know what he had so... It's a good machine lol.
