I'm getting ready to configured over 100+ iPads at a High School and the question came up how to track down an iPad if stolen.

I've tried to find some stuff on google but I'm not able to find anything solid.

I was wondering how other schools or companies handle this situation when doing large scale deployments of iDevices.

Any advise is appreciated!
