    Has anybody reviewed, compared, or tried out the security enclosures offered by Tryten or Sonnet (Maccuff mini) for holding and then locking down a recent (aluminum body, no built-in Superdrive) Mac mini? Any other options or alternative security measures to consider? Our offices have recently been targeted by thieves, despite the area having electronic pass locks and heavy doors.

    Just bend a metal strip in Ω shape, and screw the Mini UNDER your table.
    First of all, no one sees you use a mac any longer, and with good bolts (instead of the no-tampering ones, use one with weird heads, like security torx) they are too hard to take out in a few minutes.

    You could also set up 'Find my iPhone' to erase your Mac mini if it is stolen. It's confusing from the title because you can also find and erase your Mac as well. I have never used it but in theory it should work.
