Seems like the Australian Department of Education will be eyeing these devices in the DET Custom laptops we'll get next year... nice. As well as hardware locking this will make the laptops completely worthless for theives.

However, they need to make sure that it would render the laptop unable to function if removed/damaged.

Aye -- what's stopping somebody from just removing this unit and flashing the BIOS?

^

what he said, i cant see why they cant jus open it up, pop out that chip, and reflash the bios and b good 2 go again.

unless they design the laptop so that it renders it inoperable on the hardware level w/o the chip.

dunno...

Heres an idea to all laptop theves, take it out! Or if they are too dumb for that (which most probably are) then they are obviously going to take it to a shop who will do it for them. This technology is seriously floored. A stolen phone gets its IMEI number blocked which is very difficult (not impossible with most phones) to change. Maybe intergrating this into the motherboard would be a better idea. That way its not worth anyones while to change it since the board will probably end up costing more than any seccond hand laptop on the black market. c'mon people! You can do better than that! :banghead:

"all the members of parliament" ? How many times EXACTLY has that happend? Why should they have any secrets anyway? If MPs are working for US the general public and are hides infomation from US do you think that is right? Nothing personal against you I just dont like the way the system works, besides everybody knows the guvornment is involved more illigal activity than all of the criminals in jail put together! There is a handful of honest MPs in parliament and the rest are not even worth the expensive suits they walk around in.

Im guessing that approx. 5 or so PM's in the last few years have left sensitive documents in public places? One recently was with a laptop on a train, not sure about the rest.
