Ask Engadget: how do you secure a laptop without a Kensington slot?


We know you've got questions, and if you're brave enough to ask the world for answers, then here's the outlet to do so. This week's Ask Engadget inquiry is from Scott, who needs some peace of mind with his new laptop, since it doesn't have a security slot. If you're looking to ask one of your own, drop us a line at ask [at] engadget [dawt] com.

"I have a Lenovo U410, which doesn't have a Kensington lock slot. Do you have any suggestions as to how to keep it physically secured? Thanks!"

Well, Scott, while it's not the greatest situation, there are a few alternatives you might want to try. For example:

  • Griffin's TechSafe connects through the device's hinge, and should do a job to deter casual thieves.
  • There's also Kensington's laptop docking station, which also clips around your device's display -- but does require you to drill some holes through your desk.

Of course, that's just our two cents, now it's time for you lot out there to chip in with your own suggestions. If you've learned the secret to securing Kensington-free laptops, share your knowledge in the comments below.
