I somehow get the idea that somebody who would steal a laptop probably ain't too good at school (or could be on the other end of the extreme), leading them to be puzzled at this Wordlock. Taking a different approach from conventional combination locks that rely on numbers instead, the Wordlock requires you to have a decent amount of word power in order to come up with your very own unhackable word. I would recommend passing by your own name, your mom's maiden name as well as your other half's name, in addition to standard buzz words of today such as "pwn" and "owned". There is a bunch of padlocks, bike locks and TSA recognized luggage locks to choose from, doing away with the need to memorize a number combination ever again. The Wordlock retails for $9.99 each.
