Uh... Why?

If I buy a Lenovo, yank the CPU, and toss it on eBay - that's still a sale for Lenovo...

Is the idea that the eBay buyer will run out and buy *another* Lenovo system just to use their eBay chip?

Edit: helps to check the Twitter thread in the OP :D

It's "required for Secure Boot", really?
