HP Spectre x360 Security lock/cable?

HP Recommended
HP Spectre x360

I recently bought a notebook security cable thinking that it would work with my new HP Spectre x360. I couldnt figure out where it goes though. Does the Spectre x360 not have a kensington lock port? My sister's HP has one and I thought mine would too. If it doesn't have one, is there an alternative to the kensington port that I can use to lock up my computer?

Unfortunately there is no security lock on the Spectre x360. Why HP made such a glaring omission on this wonderful ultrabook is beyond me.

The design behind the lack of a lock slot by HP engineers is disgusting, nor is it understandable: how the hell the expensive machine is supposed to be secured ?? The attempt only to make it a bit more ultra is by someone with a watered brain ! Of course several commercial kits can be used to lock up the machine but all them will make the tablet mode impossible, and to a lesser degree the tent mode. Even the normal position is affected as the lid can not be tilted far back or the lock on the back of lid will pump the desk ! What the hell HP engineers were thinking ???

There are many different options when it comes to locking your laptop that has no Kensington key hole. There are laptop security devices that attach to the laptop. They work for any device by attaching them to the device with some sort of adhesive. You can also get Kensington slot adaptor that does the same thing. Below are links to products similar to the ones I have spoken of.
