Just wondering if anyone can point me in the right direction to order a powerful laptop with no OS. I want to put my own Linux distro of my choice on it and just run Windows in a local VM.

Thanks for the advice!

Many major vendors that offer a configurator in their online store allow to remove the OS. I think Lenovo and Dell allowed it. Framework Laptops also allow that, if you're lucky to live in a country they ship to.

I would be inclined to go down the road of a second hand Ryzen 7 gaming laptop about 2 yrs old hard to find, but there are some bargains out there if you look

I bought my latest almost new laptop from a pawn for a very reasonable price (less than 1/2 retail). It had Windows, but I wiped it and installed Linux.
