I'll be travelling on vacation soon and want a notebook computer lock.
I need one that not only secures my notebook to an object (like a
cable hooked to a bed frame) but also keeps the lid down. I've seen
one in the past but can't find one.

Hello holstein,

Thank you for your question.

I think the following company should fill your needs for laptop
protection and locking the computer so that it can not be opened:

You will note they are offered for specific models of laptop, for example:


Manufacturer Part No.: OSD60
MSRP: $59.95
Your Price: $39.95
Compatiblility: Latitude C600 and Inspiron 4000 Series
Components: 100% Stainless Steel Custom Dell Notebook Lock with 6'
security Cable (2) keys

Custom Dell Notebook Anti Theft Lock for Latitude C600 /Inspiron 4000.
Entire notebook can be locked with steel clamp on top and bottom for
maximum security or works as a conventional notebook lock. Protects
your data and Internal memory. Denies access to hard drive, keyboard
and screen. Special peripherals trap for monitor, mouse or speaker

They have versions for quite a few models of Dell laptops, Apples,
Compaq and Toshiba. Contact them if your model is not listed.

The best way to contact SecuComputer is by email. Here is a list of

can not be opened, but was interesting and unique enough I thought I
would mention it:
