    no security slot is standing between me and an mba. is there a solution short of a bicycle lock? will they rectify this next version? I always cable lock my pro in a coffee shop. As Kissinger said, even paranoids have real thieves
    waiting to snatch their laptops.

    You could try something like this but you would have to attach it to the lid....

    I have designed an attachment that would allow for a Kensington lock to be used on the side of the machine and have sent the specs to a milling company to price one out.

    For anyone who would buy one, what do you think a fair retail price would be? It will obviously be matte finished aluminum. Basically a plate that attaches under the Air with the slot attachment sticking out of the side a little.

    security slot misssing

    I'm kind of an aesthetic purist. I wouldn't want to attach something to the book.
    And I think most mac users are too.

    thanks for the thought
