Subject: Security for Notebooks

I am serching for two diferent solutions:

1) If the notebook is lost or stoned a software that can inform, via >internet, the ip where is connected.



2) If some one takes the notebook from the bilding any chip or similar that >alerts, may by using an arc or similar

That's a bit more difficult: laptops are SUPPOSED to be easily portable.

this is for about 300.

300 units. . .any specific budget in mind ?  Shaping a solution is often controlled by the funds available to implement 
it. . 

I also like encrypting the Hard Drive, to make the data on the disk useless as well. . .for that, I go with the 
tried-and-true: PGP. . .
