As such, the risk resulting from a stolen or lost notebook is eliminated. Once the notebook has been recovered, a local passphrase or recovery token can be used to reactivate the notebook”.

Another laptop’s security feature is AI Pre-boot Finger Login, “from which users have to scan their finger via the scanner prior to system boot-up”, and the AI Secure Delete which “allows users to securely delete any sensitive data completely with no opportunity for others to retrieve them”.
