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!!!
Excerpt: I bought this for my daughter who is away at college. Having just bought a new laptop computer,I was worried about theft. This lock was advertised as a good cable lock. I didn't know too much about this, but the salesman was happy to help me. The instructions were easy to read and very easy to follow, even for me. The salesman showed me a similar laptop to the one I had and was easily able to indicate where the cable inserted into the computer.
Excerpt: I wanted to put a desktop and monitor on a cart to wheel onto a three-season porch, where I spend a lot of time in good weather. For safety I bought this cable lock to tie things together. The lock comes with a baseplate that I could fasten to the computer, then wind the cable around the leg of the cart and finally connect it to the key in the back of the monitor. I'm satisfied with the results.
