Tracking your laptop? Any help?

Unread postby Cloud Strife » Sun Oct 04, 2009 11:00 pm

No, thankfully, my laptop has not been stolen or anything. I was just hoping for something I can download or purchase to track my laptop if it EVER gets stolen or lose it. Thanks in advance!

I'm sure there are GPS chips you can put inside your laptop which can then be tracked through some service. I don't know of any off the top of my head, so the best place to begin is probably with an associated Google search. If your laptop isn't an expensive laptop it probably wouldn't be worth the fuss.

Lojack is apparently quite reputable.

They primarily make security devices for cars, but they do have a version for laptops.
If I'm posting here, it means I'm procrastinating.

Holy cow! A Harimau sighting!
I hope you've been doing well, good sir!
