It's always good to perform a realistic risk assessment also. While it's 
nice to lock things down as hard as is possible, there is always a need 
to balance security with usability.

No point securing the machine to a level designed to thwart state level 
actors, when your only real risk is the meth-head family down the street 
nicking your stuff.

An expert is a person who has found out by his own painful
experience all the mistakes that one can make in a very
narrow field. - Niels Bohr
