Recovery software doesn't help prevent your laptop from being stolen.
Even if it gets used before being wiped having an IP address doesn't
get your laptop back. You are going to need to work with police and
subpoena records and then get a search warrant. It's going to be a lot
of work (by someone) to get the machine back.

Another approach might be to have a way to disable hardware in the machine
that would make it hard to use without going into a repair shop where
the serial numbers might be checked. That won't work often, but when it
does, it could be done a lot cheaper than going through law enforcement.
