Well, how about this :
build a PXE type CD/DVD with all your business applications (you could
automate a nightly build to keep antivirus, patches, etc current). Do
"folder redirection" or similar to mount all user-specific bits from a
USB thumb drive (itself an encrypted volume).
Then your "traveling salesman" needs only the DVD and thumbdrive --
neither of which contain batteries.
You could go one better and write a wrapper around the bootloader so
that the contents of the CD/DVD (the O/S part, where you might have a
corporate VPN client or something) are encrypted as well [in linux this
would be easy .. in Windows I'm not so sure?]
Personally, I'm worried about what happens when some wacky terrorist
gets caught with a stick of Semtex in his keister...
