Is is possible to copy a local group from what machine to another?

I need to create a group based off the administrator template to the officers from changin the backgrounds, change font size, etc. to "see the screen better" This leads to me haveing work orders of haveing to change the stuff back because someone doesn't know how to change the setting back. Keep in mind that they have to have 20/20 vision weather it be nature or corected.

With that said, II have to manage about 50+ laptop located in police cars. Diffrent models of CF-28 and 29 toughbooks(about 5 or 6 diffrent models). I used ghost to restore them back to a fresh install where I need them if they start messing up. I am asking if there is a quick duplicate the group once i make it on the first machine and then "copy" it to the other 4 models

Note: these are not on a domain.

i know that in the domain friendly versions of gpmc that you can "backup" a policy object to a file...then you can import the settings back from the backup...i would assume that this works the same in a non domain environment.
