Is it worth risking taking my Macbook with me to Istanbul, or should I just bring my iPad?

This isn't really a Turkey-specific question, I'd be wary of any hotel where staff are in the room when I'm not.

Should any reputable hotel have like a safe locker or something? It's a Radisson Blu.

Personally, despite occasional horror stories I've read, I think it's less a question of security than of convenience/luggage volume. Do you expect to need your computer? Then bring it. I've traveled with laptops to dozens of countries, including some much poorer and more theft-prone than Turkey, and have never had an incident.
>This isn't really a Turkey-specific question, I'd be wary of any hotel where staff are in the room when I'm not.
Again, this is not an entirely unwarranted fear, and I have read about people getting stuff stolen from hotel rooms, but it's never happened to me, and in business hotels I will often just leave my laptop just sitting out, plugged in, on the desk in the room. I figure most hotel employees would rather keep their jobs, so they're not going to steal.

Almost without question. Any international chain/business hotel/four star and up venue will probably have a little safe in the closet; places that don't may let you lock stuff up in a safe deposit box behind the reception (get an itemized receipt). Sometimes I will leave money and my passport in them.

Radisson Blu will certainly have a safe

You don't hear about all of the times that people travel and do not have problems

I'm more concerned with small things like money, jewelry, phones and passports. Laptops are probably safe enough.

I often secure it with a Kensington lock though.

I concur. I've travelled through a lot of SEA shitholes with a laptop. Never, ever had one nicked. Left it unlocked at plenty of hostels, too.
