Eliminates need for cables

Accessory maker Kensington has released the Laptop Locking Station, a new anti-theft product. To secure a notebook, users must simply put an open computer in place and squeeze the lock's arm shut. To release, a key is turned in a side slot. The station uses a steel backbone and deflector plates to fight cutting or prying.

The arm can swing around the base, allowing a notebook to rotate as well as slide and tilt. The base itself is normally permanently attached to a desk, but can optionally be fastened using a non-destructive tether kit. Kensington is selling the station for $80; it should be compatible with any notebook measuring between 13.3 and 17 inches.
