The MacBook Air has no Kensington lock slot. What other options are available for protecting it from theft?


Plugspy by Celmaro claims to secure a MacBook Air by monitoring its MagSafe connection status:

Plug Spy au­to ac­ti­vates when your screen is locked and start an an­noy­ing high vol­ume alert sound and send a Growl no­ti­fi­ca­tion when your Mac­Book gets un­plugged from the MagSafe pow­er adapter.


Here's one USB option. Haven't tested it personally, though, but seems better than some of the alternatives involving plastic shells and such.



I like a good old hardware solution, just a basic lock/ case. I ordered the below macbook air lock. It worked! the bottom part has a built in security lock and you get a cable with it.
