Issue laptops instead of desktop computers

Instead of purchasing desktop computers and then additionally issuing laptop computers, make the use of laptops as a primary computer the standard. If every employee had a laptop that latched into a port at their desk, it would make it much easier for employees to have telework capabilities because they could just take their workstation home. Having a port at the desk would allow employees to use a standard-sized monitor and regular keyboard/mouse when they are in the office, if they so desire.
