You can create a dashboard container for the asset dashboard charts or tables that you create.
You create a search on the Assets page and save it so that you use the search to retrieve the data that you want to see in your chart. In this scenario, you choose the following search criteria for your search:
Manufacturer = Is not empty. Alternatively, you can list the manufacturers such as
Manufacturer = Dell Apple, and so on.
Asset Type = Laptop
