You should be more worried about the BIOS than about the Fritz chip.  It
is not really possible to draw a line between a hardware based and a
software based restriction system.  In fact, allmost all deployed
systems don't need a TPM.  It is just another useless piece of silicon
on the mainboard.  Thus, you should better not suggest any brand of
laptop - with or without TPM.
