    LoJack anti-theft protection device: would you buy that thing for your laptop?

    The customized laptop I'm about to buy from HP is kinda expensive. I'm going to use it for work and school. Since it's very much a part of my everyday work life I'm going to want to do everything I can and look at every option that'll help keep my laptop as secure as possible in the interest of data security.

    Knowing about the potential security hole in LoJack, would you, today, go ahead and customize your new laptop with LoJack embedded in your BIOS firmware or would you say fuhgeddaboudit!!??

    LoJack for laptops - worth it?
