    Laptop Lock Cable

    These are an amazing little gadget that can save you a ton of money. They attach to your laptop/tablet to keep it from being stolen. Think about it, you are in the library or Starbucks studying and need to run to the restroom but that leaves your belongs up for grabs. Lock this in in place and thieves will move on. Best thing, these only cost $15-20 bucks. Spend the money it's great insurance on that $500 laptop.
