Another approach: install via a package, e.g. via a .rpm or .msi.

Assuming the laptop has space for everything under /usr/local, rsync
might be used. Or, put the software in packages, and let the
configuration management/user juggle what gets installed.

I use module:users, which "conducts" local user accounts according to
central policies. The module also lets me customize user account
information (shell, home directory) by cfengine class, so laptop class
systems can use a different home directory than NFS or AFS systems.
