    I don't understand why the Kensington lock slot was eliminated from the Retina MacBook Pro. Is it so we will keep buying them after they are stolen?

    So you can buy another one when your laptop gets stolen at Starbucks.

    It's because it takes a rather significant amount of body strength to put it in, which requires a certain amount of thickness and takes up space that could be used for other components and cooling. They also provide only very minimal security, as anyone with a pair of easily concealable wire cutters can get past one in less than a second.
