    they have them all ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
    Isn't three types of laptop needed

    1) Highly Portable - for people that travel a lot
    2) High performance - For people that use high demand software
    3) Basic - For 90% of users who do a bit of email and shopping on Taobao

    You usually still get the same brand, different models/configurations.

    Interesting to see that the govt has bought a fair bit of hardware to allow a few people to work from home.

    Suprised the Lam Administration would favor Fuijitsu over Lenovo.

    diversity on the tokens is not a bad idea... if there is a security hole in one, you don't have all department compromised.... yes it is costly to manage multiple systems.... a centralised authentication system would be pretty big gamble that only HK Goverment will take.... in the future. LOL

    (EDIT: for the sake of clarity, and in case any one of the HK GOv staff read my comments and take them seriously... centralised authentication would be very dumb and a dream come true to target by hackers. I think many would get moist at the idea)

    they probably don't give phones to staff or they are a bunch of crap and many old models and different types... and it would be a nightmare to support. They probably have tried software tokens...
