Mein Auto:
I think a heavy duty chain lock with a good lock will do.

Here are my Con:
Because the frame is movaable, it does not have the strength of a solid frame.
I have replace my current bike, less selection
It is against the law to use a light post to anchor your bike.

If they cut the lock, they cut the bicycle.

Chains are cut easily. Cables even more so. The super-hard hoop locks are hard to cut. But, they can be frozen with Freon and then shattered.

But, I wouldn't buy one either.

So, if someone wants to steal your bike, you're out of luck.

Then, the frame locking sytem makes sense. The cut the frame, but lose the bike.

You'd come back to a frame that'd be missing the wheels, handle bars, seat, etc.

+1. I'm pretty sure that simple insertion lock that she pulls the key from can be defeated by someone that really wanted it.
