    HK Govt - List and cost of "WFH" IT software / hardware...

    (Enterprise-y software / hardware can be expensive .. and involves a fair bit of services / software / licensing...)

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

    I wonder why the Highway Department needs 116 laptops costing between $21k and $31k

    wonder how many of these shops/suppliers that the govt buys these equipment from is linked to the people in these depts LOL

    or do they go to the manufactures directly.

    There is usually a bulk tender list of approved hardware and software and prices tgat all departments can buy from.

    What I don't know what the price difference is... Perhaps cpu and other specs aew different

    I hope someone told them they aren't supposed to drive over the laptops and don't need the super expensive rugged Arctic explorer kind!

    Well they don't use them, as they still demand face to face meetings, even during lockdown!

    There is so much variety in this list, that's incredible... e.g. usually companies buy laptop from one vendor only. Here? Lenovo Fujitsu MSsurface HP Dell..
    Security tokens from at least 3 vendors...

    they have them all ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
