    Anyone have any ideas what a good lock is for a laptop, that will make it more secure when it is left in a room by itself? The room itself is locked but the people that can go in there are idiots so we need to have extra security against those people.
    Thanks,

    have you done it? It takes for-fucking-ever. The point of a laptop lock isn't to make it unstealable... it's to deter the casual theif. You should still never leave it unattended long enough for someont to pick your lock with a bic pen :mamoru:

    yeah, for that matter, a person with a heavy pair of wire cutters can just as easily clip the wire.

    yes. 45 seconds tops

    and there's at least 2 or 3 vids out there showing start to finish how to do it in under 30 seconds

    uh, I've cut locks off lockers before... not hard.

    edit : not with everyday dykes, of course.

    you've obviously never done it then... It requires more than 45 seconds to actually SHAPE the end of the pen into the key...

    Just get one of those display rigs they have at Best Buy. Not the most useable, but they're impossible to get past without destroying the laptop or a lot of work.

    You could also install a lock on a cabinet and stick it in there.
