How can I safeguard my computer?

Do not leave your notebook computer unattended.  One suggestion would be to purchase a notebook cable lock. They are not a failsafe, but are a definite deterrent. This allows your notebook computer to be locked to a table leg or other fixed object, yet it can be removed for mobile use.
