Laptop Losses Total 12,000 Per Week at U.S. Airports

A study of 106 major U.S. airports and 800 business travelers says that 12,000 laptops are lost in airports each week. Less than a third are recovered, and nearly half the travelers say their laptops contain some confidential business information. Most are lost either at security checkpoints or departure gates. How over 600,000 laptops get lost at airports each year is a mystery to me; after my passport and wallet, my laptop is the thing I guard the most when flying.
