Mac Locks Secure Your Computer and Leave You a Peace of Mind

If you have been using a dorm room for sometime, chances are that you or a friend of you might have lost MacBook. The MacBook thefts are a common complaint from dorms and schools. You may be wondering how in spite of using a MacBook lock it can be taken away by thieves. Well, not all the mac locks are designed as thief proof devices. In fact no lock can be a hundred per cent foolproof.

Take any brand of mac locks, they'd be designed to make it difficult for the thieves to steal the MacBook. And as a rule of the thumb should stealing take more than a couple of minutes, it isn't steal-worthy in the eyes of thieves and they would just give their catch a big pass.

Especially consider a crowded school or a library or train or similar areas where crowd is anticipated. If you should be constantly eyeing on your MacBook, it makes pretty difficult for the thief to use a cutter to unlock the computer without having anyone go noticing the thief.

With that being said, we do not want to take that share of risk by using a flimsy and cheap cable to secure the expensive gadget we own. Do we?

Then the immediate question that pops up is what kind of a mac lock, whether a combination mac lock or say key lock that can give cost effective computer security solution?

If you see a combination lock, it has its advantages of being cheap device, but what if a sneak peek gets his eyes on the code? Oopsy Daisy! How much we'd hate that? And what if the code itself crashes?

Additionally, a MacBook Air notebook which in fact is an irresistible temptation of a gadget and you cannot carry it as a baby all the time to everywhere you go- sounds weird as well as unrealistic. The other disadvantage with a MacBook Air is that it also doesn't come with conventional lock slot. So, you would need a lock that would fit the size (sleek) of the Air. There are a few brands of plate mac locks exclusively for the aluminum-based iMac notebooks. Generally, the plate secures the iMac to a fixed object such as a table or a desk and deters anyone attempting to move it. So a plate lock offers benefit of stopping the mac from otherwise accidental tip over events.
