Notebook security system

There are several things you can do to keep your notebook computer safe, from physical locks to not actually flashing it about in public in the first place. If you work with sensitive information or you're just plain careless, you could take a look at the Caveo Anti-Theft PC Card, which fits into a notebook's PC Card slot.

First you arm and disarm protection using an alphanumeric or motion password (motion detection is built-in to also detect movement/threat). You can also set the device to auto-arm when a notebook's screen saver kicks in. You'll then hear an alert tone advising that the system is armed.

When someone tries to pick up the device, they'll hear an alert tone or human voice message indicating that a loud alarm is about to go off.

Beyond this deterrent, the Caveo also offers high-level data encryption and will quickly "lock down" and turn off in an emergency. The Caveo is ideal for corporate or governmental environments with large notebook fleets or anywhere that data security is paramount. PC World Staff

Dynabook Portégé X30L-G

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

MSI GT76

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

Taylor Carr

MSI PS63

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

Christopher Low

Brother RJ-4230B

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
