Excerpt: I looked up staples catalog of locks and decided to go with this particular cable because of its strength and flexibility. While there are many locks available online, there was only one available in the their super store. That's were I picked mine. Thank goodness it fit and was suitable. The sales person was helpful and we made sure it worked with my MacPro. Targus usually makes a good product and I will be testing it the first week of March 2015.
Excerpt: Have now bought 2 of these for daughters to use at college. Works great with built-in laptop lock slot on Apple MacBook Pro. Only concern is combination lock seems a little cheap. Thankfully does not appear that anyone has even tried to figure out how to break the combination. Remember to wind this around an object that cannot easily be moved ie solid bed frame.
Excerpt: Using a laptop computer lock is important when you travel to research repositories everywhere. The Targus DEFCON is a worthwhile expense because it works well at all the varied locations where I need to go for my work. It, of course, is unnecessary to use at home but for travel it is a required piece of equipment for me. I can attest to its functionality and ease of use.
Excerpt: Bought this Targus Notebook Computer Cable lock on sale at Staples for my son. Could not have asked for a better product, or a better deal. It was on sale and we had a Staples coupon! The lock is rediculously easy to use and so rock-solid, PLUS my son was able to set his OWN combination, and can change it anytime he wants. He just started his first semester at college, and is living in a dorm, plus he uses a MacBook Pro (expensive!).
Excerpt: The cable is long enough to be wrapped around the legs of the loft and easily reach the laptop sitting on the desk. We wanted something that would make it easy to lock and unlock, but deter theft. We did change the combination which was easy to do following the instructions with the cable.
Excerpt: This product works very well and is easy to use. My son has one for his macbook pro for college. We got one for my daughter for the same purpose, however, she has a macbook with retina display and we did not know that laptops with retina display do not have an opening for laptop locks. Be sure that your laptop has a lock port if you intend to buy this product. Other than that, it's excellent!!!
