I think that the most useful will be to buy a compliant laptop (as those
sell buy Thinkpenguin such as Lenovo Thinkpad T60 or T400), buy a
compliant free-software wireless card (such as AR7291) for laptop and
make a software flash with Libreboot...

And if you install on top of it Trisquel, Gnewsense, Uruk or Parabola,
it will disable the blobs in the hardware..

It's possible (that's what I will do when I will have the fund to do
it..) and not so complicated..
