Have a chat to @VeryPC_Colin_M as I believe VeryPC were looking into including TPM chips into their laptops.
I believe Stone have them in theirs too.

Yes, Stone definitely do. And considering that VeryPC use the same model of Clevo as Stone does (The W550EU) it would surprise me if they didn't too.

How about one of my lovely refurb T410's?
£295 gets you 2.4GHz i5 CPU, 4GB RAM, new 120GB SSD, win 7 pro, and a TPM chip

@ICTDirect_Dave, was asking John for 5 of those yesterday (some desktops too), do you know if it's got anywhere?

Couldn't tell you right now mate. He's been offsite in a meeting all day so far, and I'm only just starting to make a dent in the emails that have accumulated in my week off!

We've (literally) got dozens of these from Dave and they work really well with Windows 7 and Windows 8.1

Most SSD's such as the Samsung ones have hardware encryption which can integrate with bit locker, so you don't necessarily need a TPM module.

We recently purchased a dozen Toshiba R830 something or other with a 2nd Gen i7 CPU, 8GB RAM, 128GB SSD and 13" display the model includes the TPM chip.
They came in at about £325 with 3 year RTB and all of ours were in immaculate condition and very quiet even under significant load when we tested a demo unit.

@AngryITGuy where do you get them from, would be very interested at that price

Stone and VeryPC can't be that bad considering they have a lot of very happy customers who keep coming back. Got an old (and I mean old - I think it has an XP SP1 sticker on it) Stone PC running some software in one of my schools, and really can't fault it. I always consider both of those companies when looking at machines, and always had great service!
