All users require the capability to add external peripheral via fast USB connections and/or the latest Bluetooth standard. Additionally, all computing devices must be physically secured against theft. You should include warranty, support, antivirus, and office/mobility accessories. Consider if external monitors are appropriate to the user profile. All users should be afforded the capability to quickly disconnect from the office environment.
