I just bought half a dozen Lenovo P500 Thinkstation workstations and they were wiped clean. I believe laptops are the worst with spamware. I think manufacturers do it because it lowers cost from advertising and because laptops are more at risk (they travel and use public networks). I have always had to remove it on Sony and Dell laptops. I wouldn't let this stop me from buying a Lenovo (IBM). They are much better than Dell IMHO.

I would never willingly install MitM software of any kind.
