The idea is that the standard admin workstation (aka normal machine) is
used to administer non-critical systems that do not house sensitive
data, while the laptop is used to administer the critical ones and
enforces a stricter set of controls on the laptop.

The laptops, as opposed to the workstation, would also require TFA for
login.
