    Novell has a new enhancement request system,
    or what is now known as the requirement portal.

    I prefer testing stuff like "Battery".
    If you have a battery, you are likey a Laptop.
    (Note: I have never seen a UPS reported as a battery.)

    Avoids the issue needing to handle all the chassis type, if it's even
    there.)
