    Any recommendations on what cable lock to buy for my new Macbook Pro?

    I recognize that these cables are merely a visual, and minor physical deterrent, but I enjoyed having one for my last iBook and I've decided I would like another for the MacBook Pro.

    The heavily marketed Targus lock gets ATROCIOUS reviews on Amazon.com: http://www.amazon.com/Targus-PA410U...ef=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1256887551&sr=8-1-fkmr1

    The Kensington key lock reviews are better, but I'm afraid that it will be too wide for the new MacBook Pro (this is the reason that I can't use the old one from the iBook). Can anyone verify that it fits?

    What else is out there? If you're satisfied with your lock, please speak up :).

    Thank you!

    Interesting pick. Certainly the best reviews I've seen for a lock. BUT, there are about 5 reviews reporting that it warps and damages the MacBook Pro unibody and about 5 reviews saying that it's fine with the MacBook Pro. I'm hesitant to order one.

    The reviews: http://www.amazon.com/Kensington-64...mputer/dp/B000FLNS76/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top

    Other suggestions?

    you're looking at the wrong product. the newer 'ultra-thin' is supposed to be fine with macbook pros.
