peace of mind

VANCOUVER, July 19- Absolute Software Corporation, the leading provider of
patented Computer Theft Recovery and Secure Asset Trackingsolutions, today
announced the release of its Apple Macintosh version of Computrace LoJack
for Laptops, a laptop security tracking solution that locates and recovers
lost or stolen computers. The new Mac version can be purchased directly
through Apple retail stores, major retailers throughout North America and
directly from Absolute Software.

Approximately 700,000 subscribers, including consumers, school
districts,universities and colleges, corporations and government agencies
currently trust Absolute Software to securely track and manage their
computing assets.

John Livingston, President and CEO of Absolute Software said, “Every 53
seconds another laptop is stolen and 97% are never recovered. Losing a
laptop can be expensive and distressing when you factor in the personal and
sensitive data-from bank records to digital photos – that resides on it. In
light of all the recent high-profile laptop thefts, consumers are once
again reminded to be more vigilant than ever when it comes to protecting
their mobile computing devices.”

Livingston continued, “Apple notebooks, in particular, have long been a
target for thieves because of their sleek design, sophisticated
functionality and high resale value. With the launch of our latest
Computrace LoJack for Laptops product, Mac consumers – from mobile road
warriors to college students can now benefit from the most advanced
computer tracking and recovery software on the market; not to mention a
little peace of mind.”

BJ Mitchell, a computer security consultant in Columbia, Maryland said, “I
was very happy when I heard that Absolute Software was releasing a new Mac
version of its Computrace LoJack for Laptops product. I rely on my MacBook
Pro constantly when I’m on the road to run my security consulting business.
I believe Computrace LoJack for Laptops is an invaluable security tool
because, as I always tell my customers, the loss of intellectual capital is
far worse than the loss of the actual computer itself. My friends, family
and customers rely on me to recommend products and services that I believe
are essential; I cannot recommend Computrace LoJack for Laptops enough.”

In the event of computer theft or loss, Computrace LoJack for Laptops
silently contacts Absolute’s Monitoring Center when the computer connects
to the Internet. The embedded software provides the stolen computer’s IP
address and other networking information to Absolute’s Theft Recovery Team

and recover the computer. If a stolen laptop is not recovered within 30
days, Absolute Software will refund the purchase of Computrace LoJack for
