Petition for Intel to build a no-ME system

Here is where to sign:

I hope someone does a petition to get the Stateless Laptop built. If Intel builds a new ME-less system, it should also be building this Stateless system as part of it.

AND… I don’t understand why OEMs are dancing around with tamper resistant screws. IMO, a system needs a lock, a good one, since lockpicking is a normal hacker sport, most locks are useless. A good laptop should have a lock to prevent casual evil maids. The Google Chromebox Pixel Developer Mode scew is nice, but an evil maid could also use that, no lock. Cars have locks. Houses have locks. Computer server rooms have locks. Data contained in laptops are often worth more than cars and houses. Why do modern expensive computers have no locks? Cost? Governments would not want them, harder to access boxes going through customs? I want a Stateless Laptop, with a secure metal enclosure and a good quality lock. Then I’ll keep the key and thumbdrives with me, and just deal with rubberhose attacks, not evil maid attacks.
