Question about the security locks for laptops, etc.

I want to purchase a Kensington lock which I'll use with my MacBook Pro and likely one also for my iMac and possibly Mac Mini.
It appears where they plug in in the side is simply plastic and they would be easy to rip away to steal a laptop but in general on Macs and other computers (I also have an Acer laptop I want to use them with) is there something that is steel reinforced inside to actually make it stronger? How easy is it to break off these locks?

Actually, if you ever have the opportunity to dismantle a laptop, you'll find that there is a steel frame underneath that portion of plastic that actually mounts to and under the motherboard. If you try to rip the cable out, you would end up destroying the case and the motherboard in the process.
