Is there any way in AD to determine wether a certain computer is a laptop or desktop?

We have a software update that needs to be pushed out to all the laptops but not the desktops. We do not have a listing of each machine that needs the software installed.

In my previous job we had SMS where you could have created a query to find the machines that fit this type. At this new job I do no have SMS to create this query is there any way this is possible in AD?
