    imo software based security solutions are not worth their cost. I have yet to know of anyone who had a laptop recovered by these firms. If the thief doesn't connect the laptop to the internet or wipes the hard drive, the security system will not do anything.

    You are better off spending the money on a cheap security cable for use when your computer is at your desk, and just keep an eye on it when its not.

    Undercover

    There is another thread that talks about this more on this forum. I like undercover. You can prevent the thief from wiping your hard-drive with a firmware password and it takes screenshots.
