    Appreciate any comments from users of tracking software for a SP3. I have begun deploying them at work and want to make sure I can find one if it gets "lost".

    The lower-cost alternative to Lojack is Prey. https://preyproject.com/

    The only real advatage is that Lojack uses a EEPROM and TPM with a software agent, so it is next to impossible to disable....

    That IS an advantage. I bought a stolen Thinkpad off eBay, unknown to both myself and the seller. Lojack worked in SPITE of the OS being reinstalled multiple times by me!
