    Re: How to refuse polite

    I am not an English teacher, but I think the following letter would be clear and polite:

    Dear Mr. Employee,

    I have received your request for a new laptop and have given it careful consideration. Unfortunately I will not be able to grant your request at this time. [It would be nice to include a reason here if possible] Please continue to use your temporary desktop computer for the time being. If your needs change in the future - for instance, if you need to take a computer on a business trip - we can revisit this matter.

    Thank you for your understanding,

    Mr. Boss
