The Bookstore now offers Absolute Software's LoJack for Laptops for all students, faculty and staff. This Student Edition of LoJack for Laptops includes all the features of the Premium version, but at prices and subscription durations designed for the academic market.


LoJack installs a persistence module in your laptop's BIOS that makes regular contact with Absolute Software, providing device and location data. This module allows LoJack to reinstall itself, even if the laptop's hard drive has been erased or even replaced. This persistence is combined with five other levels of protection:


Locate: In the event that your laptop is stolen, contact local authorities and LoJack. The team at LoJack will activate active tracing of your computer. The recovery team uses information from wireless networks and GPS, if your laptop has a receiver, to determine where your computer is located.


Lock: You can have the recovery team at LoJack lock your computer to prevent further use of it.


Delete: The LoJack recovery team can remotely delete personal or confidential information from your hard drive to help safeguard your identity.


Recover: LoJack contacts and works closely with local law enforcement in the area where your laptop is detected to help get your laptop back, even if the laptop has been taken to another city or state.


Guarantee: If LoJack is unable to recover your laptop, you could be eligible for a Service Guarantee payment of up to $1,000.


LoJack for Laptops is available at the Bookstore in subscription rates of 1 to 4 years, with prices from $49.99 for 1 year to $119.99 for 4 years.
