I don't usually buy laptops. I spent $4500 USD on one and it was stolen twice, recovered fortunately both times, and finally died when I dropped it. The one I had after that I spent much less on, and it was stolen.


Unlucky?

I have friends that have used laptops for decades. Pretty sure right now it is about 20 years for them. One travels extensively all over the world with it.

None of them have ever been stolen.

You can buy hardware that makes it difficult for anyone to walk off with it as long as you remember to lock it up.
