One of the screws provided slipped and fell into an opening in the laptop and could not be recovered.

The issue, it turns out, is not the size of the security slot in the vertical dimension case depth. In fact, as the salesperson showed me, even the MagSafe connector had to be redesigned to be thinner. In contrast, the regular MacBook Pro is thick enough, and does have a conventional security slot. I surmised that not only does there need to be room to turn the key 90 degrees, but there must also be enough metal surrounding the key for a solid, secure fit.
