"Nearly every PC" has this crap? Come on now. First of all, it sounds like it's almost entirely restricted to laptops. Certainly my laptops don't have it, and it's for damn sure none of my many desktops and servers do.

unless you looked at the firmware for each laptop you can't be sure. a lot of big vendors put it on their boards* and some vendors just remove the options from the "BIOS Setup Utility" but it's still there.
