MacLocks Now has a Lock for 2010 MacBook Airs

The late 2010 revamp of the MacBook Air made it thin, light¬† and easier to seal than other mac due to the lack of Kensington security slot like most other Macs.¬† MacLocks (formerly known as AppleLocks, now a division of Noble Security’s CompuLocks) has worked around the problem by creating a clear, form-fitting case called the MacBook Air Lock that incorporates its own security slot.

The MacBook Air Lock is sold on the premise that deterrence — as represented by an obvious lock and cable — is at least as effective in stopping theft before it happens than the prospect of software-based theft detectors or tracking programs, which only activate after the notebook has already been stolen. Once the cable has been connected to the case, it cannot be detached by thieves without damaging the computer.

The FBI estimates that a notebook computer is stolen every two minutes, and computer theft affects nine out of ten companies.


The MacBook Air Lock and case sell for $75 for both the 11-inch and 13-inch models, along with an optional Security Anchor Unit for $8. The design is made for the current-model MBA only; the company also offers locks for other Apple products, including the Mac mini, Mac Pro and even the iPad.
