Some laptops have little or no trouble at all--some are a disaster waiting to happen the minute they no longer can utilize their custom driver software. Hardware vendors like Microsoft (with Surface), Apple & Dell contract with the companies that build the hardware to their specifications for drivers, etc. OS X, for instance, supports far less hardware ROOB than Windows, etc. But even with Windows, running the Insider builds on Surface hasn't really been a smooth experience for Surface owners, as I've been reading for months, now.
I'm prejudiced--only time I've ever used a laptop is when a job has demanded it and furnished it to me--and even then I hate them... In my home office right beside my framed "The first thing we do let's kill all the lawyers" quote from Shakespeare, is another framed quote: "The only good laptop is a dead laptop"....! From that you can kind of guess my career-long prejudices...
When I read your OP, it seemed to be saying that you were supporting many machines over a wide geographical area, the not-unreasonable implication being some sort of production scenario. I gently pointed out that maybe this wasn't the best scenario in which to be deploying development software. Many pages of comments later things were clarified, but I don't think that, based on your OP, my original comment was unfounded or jumping to conclusions.
