A team of German designers have produced a laptop lock for the latest version of the MacBook Air, a Mac that is not in possession of a standard laptop locking port. After more than a year of designing, prototyping and testing, the team at macBracket have released a security bracket that is made of a steel alloy and can be used with cable locks that support the standard Kensington lock. The new lock is apparently compatible with all MacBook Air models produced in 2010, 2011 and 2012.
Given that the MacBook Air doesn’t have a security port, the new macBracket locks into the hinge mechanism at the bottom of the screen of the MacBook Air by sliding the bracket in from the underside of the device. While it isn’t the most elegant laptop lock you’ve ever seen, it certainly solves the problem of locking the highly portable MacBook Air in as neat a design as possible.
Given the low price of around 20 Euros (equivalent to around $25), it will likely be popular and is already on backorder. You can find details of how to order it at the macBracket website.
