If that's a problem, then maybe a gigantic tower wouldn't be so bad
Come to think of it, I seem to remember that the later PowerBooks and
the new MacBooks have a sudden motion sensor (used to park the hard disk
in case of a sudden drop) that can be accessed via a generic API. I
seem to remember reading somewhere (can't remember exactly where) that
someone used that sensor to create a burglar alarm. I think you can
even arm and disarm the burglar alarm using the included remote control,
although it probably doesn't amount to much more than security through
obscurity (anyone with an Apple Remote could disable the alarm, unless
there was a specific key sequence required).

COMPASS [for the CDC-6000 series] is the sort of assembler one expects from
a corporation whose president codes in octal.
