How about laptops?
We do hope to be able to make some recommendations in the future, but
laptops are always going to be more difficult because the laptop
itself is your experience. In the mean time we recommend:

- Keep it under warranty or maintenance. The
IT Services laptop maintenance agreement

- Regularly back it up or use Active Directory.
- Avoid having unencrypted confidential information.
