comment Laptop Anti-Theft Measures
It should go without saying that you should keep robust backups of your encrypted data as well, so that if hardware is stolen, the only real cost incurred is the replacement of said hardware. I've heard that such things can even be insured, but then you'll probably need to start keeping track of serial numbers and stuff...

comment Is password reuse a problem if the password is very strong?
There are many password managers/databases available today, there is no good reason to reuse the same password everywhere, no matter how secure you think that password is. KeePass is free (and I think it might be open source), while 1Password is a popular proprietary manager for both Windows and OS X (also iPhones).

comment Is “different usernames” as good as “different passwords”
Please, just use a password database/manager. Everyone should use it to maintain unique passwords for all of their accounts. I used to use KeePass for a long time and it worked well, but when I also got a Mac, I had trouble keeping my databases synced because KeePass is Windows only, so I switched to 1Password which is available for both, and it works well.
