    Securing My MacBook Pro
    I'm looking at Tryten's MacBook Pro lock at MacBook Lock Pro [Master-Keyed]. Anyone know where I can buy one?

    They have an 800 number listed on their web site. Call it and ask which stores (if any) carry that particular lock. Also check with your local Apple store and Best Buy as they both carry various locks for Mac notebook computers.

    Looks nice and thin - should interfere less with the DVD slot. I just hate keys, though, so bought a more expensive one with a 4 wheel changeable combination lock that is also thin...

    To be honest, those types of locks are about the most worthless form of security. If you're really concerned either never leave it alone or buy a mini-safe to store it in.

    Another option to consider is software - in case your hardware security fails (or maybe you didn't use it). Here is a free open source type that runs on Win, Mac, and phones...
