blank laptop

blank laptop

A laptop computer with only the operating system and Web browser but no data on its hard drive. It is used by travelers who work on highly secure projects and use only Web-based applications when out of town. If the machine were to be accessed by anyone or stolen, there would be no traces of sensitive data on the disk.
