What does the recession mean for laptop owners? Well, in a recession many people will sadly lose their jobs through redundancy, earnings go down, and people generally struggle to pay bills and buy the essentials. It is an unfortuante fact, but history shows us that in a recession, more people turn to crime. Theft will increase as described in this article in the Telegraph. Laptop computers are an easy target for thieves, due to their inherent portability and the fact that they are widely carried by business people in public places, like train stations, cities and so on.
To reduce the risk of theft, ensure that you carry your laptop discretely. Don't use a traditional laptop bag as these are immediately obvious to a thief, and as they are carried on the shoulder a lot easier to swipe. Instead, hide it away in a secure laptop back pack.
