If you bring your laptop with you everywhere, there’s a high chance that it may get stolen and a slim chance that you’ll ever get to find it. However, there’s a way to increase that chance by using Locate PC. It will send you an e-mail whenever your laptop is connected to the internet and another e-mail every time the IP address changes. The e-mail contains information on the network connections, and a dial-up connection will reveal the number and the username that the thief is using. Traceroute commands can also be issued so you can locate the laptop. However, the application has several limitations. Locate PC will only work if the thief boots up your laptop while being connected to the internet. Once the thief reformats the drive and uses a new OS, Locate PC won’t work either.

With the release of Apple’s iPad, a new market niche has been created – that for tablets. When the iPad first appeared almost a year ago, it was seen as a very separate niche that won’t affect the laptop market much. But this has proven to be wrong.
