    I was just wondering what software is the best to install on the SP3 in order to locate it if it's lost or stolen. I know that since it does not have cellular connection, it is not as easy to recovering a lost cell phone, but it does have WiFi and should be able to broadcast its location when connected to the internet via WiFi, provided that the recovery software is installed and running on it prior to its disappearance. What are your recommendations? I have heard of Prey, but was told that it does not work on the SP3. thanks!

    You could try Lojack from Absolute. They have a tablet version.

    I use Lojack and it does a fine job. It will even send you an E-Mail asking if everything is OK if it doesn't get connected for a while. ;)
