I just heard of Star Labs who provide a few linux installs on their laptops and I asked them if they would consider offering Manjaro (KDE particularly) and below is their response. What options are available to me to enable them to install an "OEM" version of Manjaro KDE?...

Okay but that's disappointing. I myself can easily reinstall Manjaro
KDE on your laptop but I am looking for a device that my clients can
buy direct from someone with Manjaro KDE preinstalled so I don't have
to deal with double handling and re-shipping the device.
Thanks for confirming. I'll keep looking.
Ah okay. Your best bet would be to reach out to Manjaro directly. As far as
I know, they offer no OEM terms or installer which is why we can't offer it.
