Default Tablet Security Options

I came to realize today as a few nice new shiny Android tablets came my way that there is no "secure" way of putting these on display as for example I've looked at two now and neither have kensington lock options on them.

Anyone know something that would work for slate/tablets?

They don't have hole to put a lock. You can buy a case and secure the case with lock.

Best Buy/Future Shop seem to like using zip ties to attach that security cord/alarm thing to them...

I could very well take some cutters with me and walk out with a tablet

Yup and all those things are attached via a REALLY sticky pad to the back of them.

But it's not entirely impossible to remove ;)

I think that's really the only way to secure something without a Kensington hole/slot without disallowing the ability for somebody to pickup the device and "feel" it.
