Good news – every day a new laptop comes out that is better, lighter and more affordable than the one before (buyers remorse heaven)!
Bad news – as the laptops evolve and get thinner, it gets more difficult to secure them due to their sleek platforms that don’t allow for traditional security slots (generic cable lock).
Amazing news – Maclocks has constantly been in the front line addressing these challenges as they develop to create low profile laptop locks that deliver optimal security and functionality, and often custom designed to given devices.
Your laptop is at HIGH risk of being snatched no matter who or where you are – working in a shared office, doing homework in your dorm room or just browsing the web in your local Starbucks. You can put all the money you want into software protection, but nothing comes close to stopping a thief like using a lock to physically secure your laptop to an immovable object. While this might seem extremely extreme, think of it this way …
