    That was a darned fine article Ms Bradley. I couldn't think of anything to add. And I had not heard of Should I remove it? Look forward to Pt 2.

    If you are going to CTO a laptop I would have deleted the fingerprint reader (if you can, some options don't let you). I consider them security issues; easily tricked/bypassed.
