MacNN reader "Cory" let us know about an incompatibility between Kensington's laptop anti-theft device and the 17" PowerBook G4: "The AC power port is too close to the security port that the Kensington locks into." As a result, 17" PowerBooks can only be locked to the device when running on battery. Update: MacNN reader Brad Stone confirms that the standard Kensington lock system does not work with the 17" PowerBook G4. However, "Alex" let us know that the "Slim" Kensington Microsaver laptop lock kit will work with the model.
