I have a near new HP DC7700p SFF desktop. Designed for corporates. No optical drive or floppy or card reader, though all are options. A daughter works for a gov't department (not one that deals in money); USB drivers are forbidden. Another works for an insurance company; I've not asked, but I figure security would be pretty tight there.
