Hmm, let's see...

- Printer: probably want to keep customizations such as default page
size, paper tray, etc

- Mouse: emulate the middle button or not.

- Keyboard: what's the key layout

- Display: what depth, resolution to use

- Hard disks: where to mount


So what other kinds of devices whose local configurations didn't
matter did you have in mind anyway?
