The keylock is located at the front of the laptop, or on the top at the front, depending on the computer's dimensions. It locks the lid and other physical access points into their current position.

Serves the same purpose as briefcase locks.

Available in key and combination lock model variants.

       I'm not clear on how this is in any way superior to a digital locking system. A mechanical lock can be picked in a minimal amount of time but a digital security system can detect that an attempt has been made on it and lock down or alert an administrator. The only real protection provided is to prevent a stranger from opening your laptop, finding that it is password protected and then, what, spilling their coffee in the keyboard? Because no thief has ever picked a mechanical lock before, or produced a duplicate key.

       //digital lock// I doubt most laptop thieves care about data; the drive just gets blown away before it goes to the pawn shop or whatever. I also doubt that most petty opportunistic thieves would carry a set of keys around with them, or be schooled in lockpicking: I'm envisioning a decent-sized key & lock, not quite as large as a house key.

       and... so what ? He doesn't have the keys to present to the next owner. And the same could be said for briefcase locks.   

       The purpose of the lock is to look neat.

       If it looked all steampunky and had a skeleton key it would be nice.

       Wrought iron hasps and a big rusty padlock would be better.

       Why not laptop-in-ancient-briefcase. It would have a non-functional rusty lock built in, larger than usual screen, and old typewriter keyboard together with the carriage return and bing.

       I'm trying to figure out whether you mean the sound or the search engine. Either one is funny.
