Hi guys

I've installed an anti-theft application on my laptop, in case some thieves break into my home and take it (there's been burglaries in the area). I'm trying to think further down the line. The issue I have with these applications is that if someone takes my laptop, they may be cunning enough to take out the disk inside at which point, I can kiss goodbye the anti-theft application I installed.

Are there any tracking devices out there that I could plant into my laptop, to locate it in the event of an unfortunate event?

Thanks for helping
