Do you PHYSICALLY lock down your PC, monitors, etc.?

Most people on this board have computers that cost more than entire computer labs I'd think...

Let strength be granted, so the world might be mended.

Uh, I doubt someone would be able to walk on us in the night. Thats what pets are for.

If I wasn't there -> nothing would stop them either way.

Also, its not worth anything close to 4000.

Like others have said, if someone has committed to breaking into your house, I highly doubt they'd leave them just because there is a lock on it.

I've seen those locks you've mentioned before, a friend used one for his laptop in uni halls. You could get through one of those no problem with tools a thief brought with him or you have in your own home.

The best you can ever really do is make sure you have good home insurance and keep proof of purchases etc for all your big items including the PC components.

Why in te world would you need to lock something down in your house? Do you have terrible friends? Do you live in Harlem? Are you paranoid?

TC, if you're that paranoid, just get a gun.

I just upgrade my renters insurance. That and being almost always home anyway, and having a gun, don't really worry me.

No one would steal my computer when I have an iPad and an HTC One lying about.
Fan of metal? Don't mind covers? Check out my youtube and give me some feedback

My first computer (1996 Gateway 2000) had a lock on it. It was nice to keep the relatives off of it.

No, it isn't necessary here. All my neighbours have keys for all the other houses in the street, and the doors are only made of paper or something, anyway.

No need to when I lock my doors.
