I want to buy a high performance laptop without a webcam / camera.  I am looking for something with at least the capabilities of a Toshiba Qosmio X505-Q880.  I have to have a laptop which physically does not have a camera.  I can't just disable the camera in the BIOS or something like that.  Does anyone know where I can get one?

Tougher to find than I thought.  Best I can find is the Panasonic.  They make very good quality laptops but they do not have the latest chip technology in the US.

You may want ot just call the companies and order over the phone. It will be much easier to find what you want this way.

When you buy a new set from a company you could specify  them not to have a webcam and camera installed. Its quiet easy not to install the webcam/camera.

So you could choose any set that suits your requirement in-terms of power and the software.


Lenovo looks to have what I'm looking to buy.  The "W" sries, "ThinkPad W701" in particular.
