I think FileVault is more suited for laptop security, although, it certainly works for desktops too. However, I think it is more of a deterrent to keep would be info thieves from stolen laptops. Maybe they just toss the laptop if they cannot get into it or possibly sell it on ebay. It keeps out the causal thief. Also, people should not associate this with Wi-Fi security as it has nothing to be with securing the airwaves.
