Create a collection with all mobile (laptops, notebooks, portable) systems

Someone just asked how to create a collection with all laptop computers? Well, if there is a good naming convention on site, this query will be easy to make. But, otherwise, we need to use chassis type value because, for example, laptops and notebooks are not the same things according to Microsoft.

The full list with chassis types are bellow (taken from

5Pizza Box
6Mini Tower

12Docking Station
13All in One
14Sub Notebook
16Lunch Box
17Main System Chassis
18Expansion Chassis
19Sub Chassis
20Bus Expansion Chassis
21Peripheral Chassis
22Storage Chassis
23Rack Mount Chassis
24Sealed-Case PC

So, to make a collection with all kind of mobile systems (Portable, Laptop, Notebook, Sub Notebook) we will use 8, 9, 10 and 14 chassis types. The final query looks like this:

select SMS_R_SYSTEM.ResourceID, SMS_R_SYSTEM.ResourceType, SMS_R_SYSTEM.Name, SMS_R_SYSTEM.SMSUniqueIdentifier, SMS_R_SYSTEM.ResourceDomainORWorkgroup, SMS_R_SYSTEM.Client from SMS_R_System inner join SMS_G_System_SYSTEM_ENCLOSURE on SMS_G_System_SYSTEM_ENCLOSURE.ResourceID = SMS_R_System.ResourceId where SMS_G_System_SYSTEM_ENCLOSURE.ChassisTypes in ("8", "9", "10", "14")

If you receive the “This query has a syntax error.” error, change the quotation marks when pasting the query, as this one does not work with ConfigMgr.
