GPS trackers/ remote tracking software

I am wondering if there are any cheap security measures for computers such as gps tracking devices to place inside the computer or software to load that when the computer is accessed after being stolen, tracking software online can track the location of the pc. Does anyone know of any?

Can remote desktop be used as such a security measure on ur own? How does remote desktop work anyway and what kind of accessibility do you have with remote desktop?
