What kind of Physical Locks are out there for the W530?

2012-07-02, 6:32 AM

Wanted to buy the W530 but to buy it and have it stolen the next day would suck big time...

 

What kind of lock can i get for this thinkpad?  Is there a lock connector on the laptop?

 

What'd you guys recommend?

So, the W530 has the Kensington Lock slot as well?

 

I didn't see that when i looked in the features or technical specs of the system.

 

Thanks!

The W530 should have a lock slot for a kensington or similar cable lock, as it is virtually identical in design to the W520. I should know tomorrow, as mine is scheduled for delivery.

dchow78,

Click on the link below..

http://www.lenovo.com/products/us/laptop/thinkpad/w-series/w530/

There is the gallery in the site. Then select the 3rd last picture in the gallery, you can see the lock slot on the right side of the laptop beside the LAN port. That is the lock slot where you can use.

Any Kensington lock will work since the ThinkPad has a Kensington lock slot, which is the standard lock slot on laptops.

For people who ask about kensington locks, I suggest they watch this:

Barrel locks are not very secure.  A number of years ago someone figured out that you could unlock a Kryptonite bike lock with a Bic pen barrel.  My laptop lock (not sure if it's actually Kensington brand) is a combination lock but I'd still never leave it in a very vulnerable space even if it's locked up.
