Now that you can buy squillions of memory megabytes for three and sixpence, maybe the computer theft gangs are starting to target other more profitable consumer items. But maybe not. Apple value-added reseller Mygate has come up with an answer. The Powertrap encases your computer in a tough steel jacket which exposes the necessary drive slots and buttons but stops the case from being opened or moved forward or back. You glue or bolt the case to the desk or floor. There are six models, all in Apple platinum grey with a suede anthracite grey base. Prices begin at 150. Call Mygate on 0181-318 1424, or fax them on 0181-318 1802.
