When I secure my laptop to an object using a Kensington lock, what features should I be looking for in that object to help ensure that my laptop is as safe as possible?
A table doesn't work, since as one person says, "A table is topologically equivalent to a sphere". And that makes sense - since someone could pull the table up.
He suggested a chair with a closed loop (more topologically equivalent to a donut), but someone could bring the chair to the bathroom and cut the lock.
The 3rd suggestion was a door handle on a counter. Which is what I ultimately used. But there is one issue with that: it's next to the sink, and so it increases the chances that someone might accidentally spill something on it (or accidentally step on it).
