Re: Engraving Names on Laptops and other devices
Most laptops come standard with a Kensington Lock port.
The lock itself will run 30-50 bucks, but they are a must for dorms. The biggest thing is to never leave it unattended in a public area. Take it to the bathroom if you have to, like CC said. Engraving Redsmetz Jr. into it (or the last 4 of his SSN) will prevent someone from selling the laptop after it gets stolen. Just because his name is in it, doesn't mean it won't get stolen.
It's also a good practice to write your name in the inside cover of all textbooks with permanent marker.
What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?
All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.
