I have the following Librebooted GNU/Linux laptops if people are interested to buy and use it for learning Free (Libre) and Open Source Software, or if you want to use it as your primary system:

The price range for the above Lenovo Thinkpads is between ₹20,000-₹25,000. These run Debian, by default, but, you can also run Parabola or other GNU/Linux distributions. The Intel ME is disabled on the models.
