I would like to hear about your security and management solutions for loaner
laptops.  Please respond privately, and I will summarize responses if

Do you use internal tools like SteadyState; third-party tools like Fortres,
DeepFreeze, Clean Slate, or CybraryN; or specialized browser shells?

How do you maintain and update software?

What are the logistics of keeping laptops charged and in good shape?

I am betting this is a FAQ, but I couldn't find much information in my
initial search.  Please do send me references if you have any. Thanks!
