    Hey all,

    I want to pick up a kensington locking cable for my TiBook but I'm not sure which one to get. The Apple store sells the slim-lock, but according to the kensington site that one isn't compatible with the Ti. Can some let me know which works for sure? Thanks!

    I have a problem with the larger barrel on the 17 PBook, as it fouls the psu socket, but it works fine for the Ti.

    Ok thanks. Which one were you referring to, WinterMute? the slim lock?

    i'm not sure, but I think not, it's got a shorter, chunkier barrel than on the pic, and the cable comes out at 90 degrees.

    I wish I'd seen that one, it's a real pain having to unplug to leave the thing on my desk...

    Hmm ok..I'll have to take a trip to the local reseller (MicroCenter) and see what they've got. Thanks for your help. :)
