It also comes with a three year warranty and next day onsite support in the event of technical problems. The Latitude can be customized in a variety of ways, based on the user's needs.  Prices vary from $500 to $1,200 depending on size and additional options. 
 

All laptops are required to have encryption software installed by our IT support team.
