    Lojack is a good company, but the issue you have is you will not be able to track it if it is turned off and with some softwares if it is formated.

    Some companys have an option that has it built into the motherboard but you have to buy the laptop like that.

    How most of this software works is when it is stolen you report it to the company then when and if the laptop is turned on and connects to the internet it contacts the software company thru the internet.
