Recently bought a 5 to use with my desktop.

Now I can automatically decrypt the filesystem just by plugging in the key during boot, and login / sudo just by tapping the button! No more typing passwords, but everything is still encrypted and secure.

A little disappointed that Intel Macs can't use it with FileVault during boot, but the Mac already has a fingerprint reader so I wasn't planning to use the YubiKey with it anyway.

@sam I've tried those on my work computer (windows, alas) and the result was an instant BSOD. Every time.
