    If someone has physical access to your system with intent to steal hardware, you really can't do anything to stop a determined thief.

    If you have sensitive data you are trying to protect from recovery after physical theft then you need to encrypt the data with something like TrueCrypt.

    But as I abbreviated above Apple already offers encrypted protection. It's called File Vault. ;)

    I have read that File Vault is terrible in many ways… I for one use PGP WDE, but unfortunately have had to remove it until they release an updated version for Snow Kitty.
