I use the Kensington Microsaver. As it was the only lock I found that had a key and didn't lift up the edge of my 17" Alubook.

I would recommend the Kensington lock since it feels durable and has a rubber mount where it meets the side of the powerbook, meaning it doesn't scratch it and it has no slop in there. I had a friend with a combination lock and the numbers locked up on it so the company told me I had to cut it off with a hacksaw. I wasn't too happy about that.

Wasn't it the Kensington locks that you can open with a correctly placed ball point pen?

A quick google..

Yeah, that was big news in the bicycle world last year sometime... you can probably find some unsettling videos of people picking expensive locks using only a ballpoint pen tube—all in a matter of seconds!
