What is it that this does over and above what iCloud does anyway?
I'm about to purchase a MacBook Pro and considering this to go with it as my last laptop was stolen. What is it that this does over and above what iCloud does anyway?

LoJack for Laptops offers you the chance to RECOVER your laptop. If the computer is stolen AND you report to police, Absolute Software Investigators (all ex-cops) will track you computer, identify the user and location of the machine, and work with police having jurisdiction to get your computer back. There's no other process in the world like it. Over 25,000 computers have been recovered with this softare. VERY much worth the insurance for your new machine.

LoJack for Laptops provides you with a dedicated Theft Recovery team that will investigate and work with local law enforcement to recover your device should it ever be stolen. On top of this, there are also options to remotely lock your device or delete files if you are more concerned about the data on the device.
This can work well with iCloud, as your data can be stored and retrieved from iCloud from another device as we work to recover the hardware for you.
