Is there a way to restrict who logs onto a specific PC by using Group Policy?

I want to be able to restrict who logs onto a PC.  I know I can restrict a user's account so they can only log onto certain PCs.  But, that's not what I want to do.  I have a few PCs that only certain users should be able to log onto.  I know I can to do it by deleting the 'NT Authority\Authenticated Users' and 'NT Authority\Interactive' members of the 'Users' group on the local PC, then, adding the AD users I want to be able to logon.  But, I'd much rather do it with a group policy.  Am I just missing the setting(s), or is it not possible with AD?

Sweeet.  I knew that policy was there.  But, I thought it was ONLY for local logon accounts and I wanted to restrict domain users.  Thank you for the help.
