    You can find the security slot on the back of the iMac.

    Kensington makes many of the locks, they can be found online for significantly cheaper than what the Apple Store or regular retail places will carry them for. Most are priced between £25-40.

    This one is intended for desktop use and can also lock peripherals.

    Why would you bother locking your iMac to your desk?



    It's called a deadbolt. Get one. :rolleyes:

    Yes, preferably you'd have better protection before someone enters your home. But like car alarms, a Kensington Lock can be used as a deterrent (it'll take at least a few minutes to get it off without a key/combination). If force is used, it'll obviously damage the security slot.

    I'm using dropcam dot com. A new way of absolute digital security. By the time your connection is knocked out the perps are recorded off site.

    Really? How about not letting questionable people in your home?
