    Manufacturers have to do everything these days to stand out of the crowd. Gateway will now be putting a tracking device into the M250, M460 & M680 laptops. With the device, laptops can be traced and found, once stolen. The service will cost customers $99 for a three year coverage. If the laptop is not found within 60 days upon activation of the tracking device, the owner of the notebook may get up to $1,000 back.
