I think you may be mixing "UEFI" and "Secure boot" up, All Mac's and many
Intel laptops and server boards now use UEFI instead of a traditional BIOS,
actually nearly 100% produced past 2010. The UEFI 2.2 specification adds a
protocol known as Secure boot that does the nasty DRM stuff your
mentioning. Laptops running UEFI 2.2+ and using Secure Boot are what your
on the hunt for.
