Sharp Mebius PC-NH50K

Yeah, it's not too different than having a key to your car (outside the fact that they're not as easily copied, of course), but for those rather concerned with the safety and security of their biz lappie, Sharp's new Mebius PC-NH50K and PC-NH50AK require the insertion of a USB key to get booted. Of course, we have a strong feeling this key will be often kept in the very same laptop bag as the machine—thus without constant user diligence you just end up with an easy way to immediately lose access to your system. Might we recommend biometrics instead?
