Hi everyone! Mods please move if I'm in the wrong forum?
Lenovo have launched a new laptop T Series I think that has a 'find my laptop' facility. But for the rest of you with older machines, please do not gut your lives as mine has been done unto? Do no procrastinate! Follow my suggestion. Do it now, while you can.
My new Z was stolen on Comrades Marathon day in S.Africa. My business in jeopardy as nothing had yet been backed up. This is why I refer to it as 'gutting ones life'. On the Monday after I found out that 3 laptops had been taken in that one day at the same shopping centre. Two of them Lenovos (they get sold at a taxi rank for ZAR50 or USD12!, this is for a ZAR 9000 machine!).
There are 2 very helpfull software packages that you can get:1) is a look for me type thing that traces the computer whenever it logs onto the net. 2) The other uploads photos at 15 min intervals of the person using the web on your computer. Choose one, choose both but install them. Google stolen Lenovo, you will see the agony of people wordwide. It is worth it to do.
My aim is to buy this new T series or whichever it is, if I can survive & resurect my ailing company because of the lost data. Obtaining a 'look for me' is - to me anyway, the most important & first consideration I will choose my next machine by.
Regards & 'may the Lenovo always be with you'.
