file vault :

[MEDIA=youtube]Ujq3jFJOMSA[/MEDIA]

this will enable encrypting your hard drive so it can not be read when the mac book is stolen and the HD is taken out.

it will take a few hours for the first encryption, and make sure not to lose your admin pass to access your hard disk or mac pass for recovery

system preference, security, file vault
