laptop or desktop

Hi

I'm trying to work out a way to distingish between a laptop and desktop, anyone got an idea how to do this? so I can automate our full disk encryption on Laptops

Thanks

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.)
