You'll never guess what you can do once you steal a laptop, reflash the BIOS, and reboot it

Re: Again,

"When I am finished for the day I simply drive a large nail through the battery compartment of my laptop which consumes the whole assembly with fire and renders the laptop uncompromisable overnight."

As a bonus, no need to turn on the heater during cold nights. Takes a long time to boot in the morning though, walk to the nearest computer store, buy new laptop, walk to where ever your offsite backups are stored, bare metal restore, walk back home, reboot. Could get expensive, I hope you have a cheap source of suitable large nails.
