I'm going to Odessa, Ukraine, and may have to take my laptop with me for work reasons. I'll be staying at an inexpensive place which I rented online.
Is it a very bad idea to leave the laptop in the apartment while I go out? What are the chances of it getting stolen? How do I minimize them?
The laptop is quite heavy and I'm reluctant to carry it with me all the time (it also doesn't seem very safe).
Also, I should note that it's not the data but the hardware cost I'm worried about (nothing spectacular, about $2000, but still).
EDIT: Are there any other ways to keep my laptop safe at home besides Kensington lock?
