well after reading all of these posts :P
I think it all boils down to physical security, I guess as long as I keep my laptop in a safe place when I am not using it then I should be ok.
But after posting this question, I did put a password on my BIOS for the first time, I also made sure that Safe Mode was password protected as well, and finally I'm just going to use common sense. I might even look into Laptop Tracking Security Software such as LoJack.
Absolute Software -
You can never be too careful in a dangerous world such as ours lol
Anyways thanks for all your thoughts and input guys !
Again Merry Xmas and have a safe and happy 2010 !
