Laptop lock question. Yes I know you people hate locks, but please bear with me!

It's very possible that I will be changing my work situation and either going part-time or working from home or some combination thereof. For a myriad of reasons, I will probably be using my 13" late-2008 white MacBook
as my primary machine. Occasionally I would be working in the office and potentially bringing in the MB instead of using one of the in-house desktops. Our office is pretty safe but it's undergoing renovation and there are a lot of people coming and going. I'd like to invest in some kind of lock to tether the computer to the desk, and I'd like your input for product recommendations.
I realize that this question has been asked before but the vast majority of the answers were along the lines of "any lock can be picked or cut." I get this. However, a locked-down laptop is less enticing than an unlocked laptop. It wouldn't be unattended for very long at any time.
I understand that Kensington locks have been popular, is that still the case? Are there specific models that are better or more suited to my computer?
TLDR: Best laptop lock for 13" white MacBook.
