    (I'm sorry if this has been posted elsewhere) Can someone recommend a decent laptop security cable that won't scratch a Macbook Pro? I've read negative reviews that say the Kensington cable scratches the case and that a Targus lock changes combinations. Thanks!

    The newer kensingtons have a heavy rubber tip where the lock connects to the case. It won't help if you can't hit the lock hole easily (metal insert and metal computer case = scratches), but that will be a problem with all metal locks if your issue lies there. You can always put a small piece of ipod screen protector aroud the hole to help with the insertion mis-alignements (yeah, that comment is wiiiiide open for all you inuendo buffs :eek::eek::eek:).
