Best Laptop to buy for Freebsd Without OS?

Hello all.

I am evaluating to buy a new laptop for using it only with Freebsd. I 
know in the website mention some options. Thing is that here the most 
powerful ones (I3, I5 I7) are sold ONLY with Windows installed and 
that increase the value of the equipment. I want the best option at a 
nice price (could be Intel or AMD) the ide is to have it as my main 
machine and when I need Linux or Windows have them there running 
under VirtualBox. The use will be mainly for web development.

My idea is to buy it with FreeDos or Linux installed or without 
operating system but here there is not an option for powerful 
equuipment unless you want one with Atom processor. The powerful one 
came ONLY with Windows installed.
I am thinking to ask a friend that travels frequently to USA to buy one for me.

Any suggestion of where and what equipment to buy, without OS 
(Windows) preinstalled? Of course at a good price and the most powerful one.

Thanks in advance.
